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.
