  • Great place... Remembrance of 1962 war. Which fought between India and China. Soldier Jaswant singh and their counterparts show their courage to stop chinese army here. Indian army personals and local people like SELA sacrificed their lives for our Nation. Proud of them. Jai Hind
  • On way to Tawang Pay tribute to the brave heart soldier who fought Chinese army alone for 72 hours.
  • Jaswant Singh is a brave Indian soldier who sacrificed his life in the 1962 Indo-Chinese War. He fought alone for three days and killed countless Chinese soldiers before getting shot by them. Jaswant Garh is a memorial built by the Indian soldiers on the spot where he died in his loving memory. We visited this well maintained memorial on our way to Tawang.Till date, the local people and the Indian soldiers believe that Jaswant Singh protects that area as their guardian spirit. We heard innumerable stories of Baba Jaswant (that's how people address him) saving soldiers and other people from onroad blizzards and other dangers. Even the Chinese soldiers respect him as a Messiah. All things used by Jaswant Singh like his furniture and uniform are religiously maintained by the Indian soldiers. They believe that every night Baba Jaswant goes out on vigilance to check if everything is all right. They serve him breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday and many people write to him asking for his advise. We saw a soldier bringing in a bunch of letters addressed to Baba Jaswant Singh. It was indeed a peculiar feeling to experience all this. We paid our respect to the brave martyr and went on our way to Tawang.
  • I know this place and visit many time because I also a soldier "JAI HIND"
  • Beautiful place and memories of Indo China war of 1962.Secrifice of our Honarable army personals on the war .Salute to them .Jai Hind.
