  • A little more than thirty kilometers from the capital is the national monument to the fallen in the war of liberation which made the Bangladesh independent from Pakistan. A modern sloping triangular blocks inserted in a nice complex. Architecturally interesting and historically significant of a moment that we are poorly understood. Well worth a visit and a reflection.

  • Poor management in the area. Everyday thousands of people come to visit the national monument from different parts of the country. Awareness based leaf let may be hanged inside the premises. Like throw rubbish in dustbin. At the same time enough dustbin should be installed throughout the area. But during my visit I did not see any dustbin. In my opinion Monument's color should have glaze also. Now the color is very dim and simple.
  • The National Martyr's Monument is one of the most beautiful place in Savar as well as Bangladesh. The environment of this place is secured and nice.You can find a beautiful lake & red lotus here. Also u can see the grave of our beloved & respected martyrs here. This place give you a good experience.
  • This monument is our national symbol to show respect and love to the martyrs of the Liberation war of 1971. They left their family and loving person only for the freedom of mother land. Yes, they won. We are free now and we enjoy the holy freedom by their sacrifice. So we made this monument to remember their contribution. Every year in 16th December at the 12:00am, we celebrate our Victory by giving flowers on this monument.
  • Great place with historical background. It's a respectable place to all Bangladeshi people. People usually go there because of it's beauty. Lake & trees are very nice with neat & clean area. Very good place to spend a few hours.
  • A green place with lots of trees and lake to forget tiredness. It has a great structure. It gives us lesson how to sacrifice for others. Entrance free for all. I will suggest everybody to visit at least once in the life. There is a nice mosque for taking prayers. The National Martyr's Monument is open for visit up to Magrib.
