About Chandrashekhar Azad Memorial, Orachha
Chandrashekhar Azad was a prominent freedom fighter who sacrificed his life for the fight of independence against the British. He was the mastermind behind the Kakori Train Dacoit that shook the British Empire. During his exile, he stayed in the Orchha forest for a brief period disguised as a Sadhu. Chandrashekhar Azad had vowed that he won’t be caught and shot himself when the British police force came in his close proximity.
Today, this memorial stands in the area where he lived during his exile and commemorates his bravery and sacrifice. There is a board briefing the history near the memorial and a statue of Azad.
