About Tawang War Memorial

Tawang War Memorial is a big 40-foot structure overlooking the Tawang-Chu Valley. The great Tawang War Memorial was constructed in commemoration of the sacrifices of great Indian Army soldiers who laid their lives to protect the nation during the 1962 Sino-Indian war. The visitors can spot the names of the brave soldiers carved on granite plates and this memorial was also visited by Dalai Lama in 1997. The memorial is dedicated to 2420 brave soldiers who gave up their lives in the war at Kameng sector. Now, Tawang War Memorial is well maintained by Indian Army, and it is a major tourist destination in Arunachal Pradesh. The memorial of Rifleman Jaswant Singh Rawat is another major attraction here, who won the Mahavir Chakra as Posthumous Award. He fought all alone with the invading Chinese army to hold them back for about 72 hours during 1962 India-China war. The place can be accessed by road from Tawang Town. A lot of people now come to visit Tawang War Memorial and Jaswant Singh Memorial.
