Kargil War Memorial - Review

The Dras War Memorial (aka Vijaypath) is a war memorial built by the Indian Army in memory of the valiant soldiers who lost their lives during the Kargil War. The Kargil War was fought between the nations of India and Pakistan. It began on May 8, 1999 when the Pakistani army intruded the Indian side of the LOC (Line of Control). The battle continued for almost two months and on July 4, 1999, after an 11 hour long combat, India won. The then Indian Prime Minister Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared Operation Vijay (Kargil War) a success by July 26.

At the Dras War Memorial, you will find a Memorial Wall. Names of the Indian soldiers and officers who lost their lives in the Kargil War are inscribed on it. A beautiful tribute to the brave souls lost.

  • This place reminds us about the sacrifice of the Indian soldiers, their love to the country. This place demonstrates the soldiers on portraits and the weapons they had seized during the Kargil war from the Pakistani army. It's a peace memorial of the soldiers. The descipline here is very good. The maintained and neat environment as well as the mountain surrounding creates the atmosphere that every citizen of India needs to pay tribute to the soldiers.
