  • We were there only for couple of hours or so. I am still short for words to describe about the place. But its a highly recommended place to visit if anybody is passing by thw road. So many people have lost their lives foe their country. It reminded me of my own country's freedom fighting.
  • I can't describe this place in words but I strongly recommend visiting it at-least once in a lifetime. You will come to know about the sacrifices of our brave soldier. Jay Hind
  • Very good and well maintained place. One of the must visit place, having all the war memories and remain items there. Tells glory of our Indian Army and our victory.
  • A patriotic place where every Indian must visit once during their lifetime.
  • The place shows how our great heroes fight in the Kargil and won.
