The National Military Memorial Park (NMM Park) is a sacred symbol of thanksgiving by the people of INDIA to the men of Karnataka who have died in the service of the nation. Out city will be the first in India to have such a memorial dedicated to brave men and their families. Spread over 7.5 acres, NMM is being constructed adjacent to Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain Park in the heart of Bangalore and boasts several unique features. This is an imposing and traditional obelisk symbolizing the strength, courage as well as the conviction of martyred soldiers. The names of more than 22,000 soldiers who laid down their lives fighting for the nation will be inscribed in plaques on the memorial’s walls.
This park is said to be India’s first memorial for war heroes who died for the nation post-Independence. The ambitious project was announced in 2009, but its progress was impeded by numerous delays and obstacles. After missing around six deadlines for the inauguration, it was finally thrown open to the public in 2013. Apart from exhibits of military/defense systems and equipment, the park has a 207 feet high flagpole, supposedly the tallest in India. The national flag remains hoisted at all times and is well-lit. On a day with a strong breeze, the sight of the Tricolor fluttering is magnificent.
there are around 15 military and defense exhibits in the park. These include actual tanks, missiles, rockets, airplanes, and carriers. Though the exhibits, by themselves, are impressive.
