Commemorating Indian victims of the recent conflict with Pakistan, Drass War Memorial tells a story of an epic mountain battle. Located within the army base at the foothill of Tololing Hill, the memorial includes 527 graves of those who perished. The museum inside the memorial meticulously details the 1999 Kargil War, displaying a model of the battle and a rich gallery of personal weapons. The large courtyard features Mig-21s and a Pack Howitzer, as well as a memorial wall with names of the fallen.
