Went on a rainy Eid holiday-- to avoid the major traffic jams common to Dhaka. Despite the rain, lots of people, especially families were visiting this important place honoring early hero's of this vast and relatively new country. Nicely landscaped gardens, a few signs in English, and guards very helpful. Yes, being a foreigner you will have people take your... More

A monument truly symbolic to Bangladesh independence, identity and history. Should definitely be in the visit list if you come to Dhaka. It takes a long to time to reach from the city - early morning start is recommended. Also, bring caps/umbrellas as things can get pretty hot.

I saw this area few times when I was moving to factories but this time I got hame to enter this place.really good architectural work. Can maintain better but it's really nice and fairly big area.

Very nice place to walk around. There are a lot of pushy "hand painters" outside the attraction. The structure itself is impressive. Make sure to view it from all around.

Savar is just 40 km away from Dhaka city center in Bangladesh. This beautiful place will touch your heart with its told and untold stories of freedom fighters of Bangladesh war for Independence. The memorial has a nice tower with big gardens all around.

A stunning site set back off a very busy road but you would hardly know this as the places is calming and tranquil. Take the time to wander around and marvel at the stunning simplicity of the monument to the martyrs of independence. Worth looking up the conflict which is little known outside of this region but had a significant... More

I think every visitor should visit this memorial perferably with a local who would explain the background to this place.

This is the National Martyrs Monument in Savar, about 40 minutes drive from Dhaka, the monument remembers the martyrs of the independence war in 1971-2. It has an unique structure and lies adjacent to a lake. Not too busy place, place. The Bangladeshi people get emotional about this monument and the war it remembers. That war is still something everyone... More
