This memorial is situated in a beautiful park. But the gorgeous trees do not prepare you for the sight of the names of all of our soldiers who gave up their lives protecting our country. The poem written from the perspective of a child of a martyred soldier is heartbreaking, but true. Even more so are the blank stone slabs that are ready for additional names.

Would recommend everyone to visit this place at least once just as a reminder of everything that has gone into ensuring that our country remains safe for its people.

Had been to a exhibition recently in the museum inside the National military memorial and was astonished at this beautiful lung space. Very well maintained despite no maintenance staff visible.
It consists of a park/garden with plaques giving names of all soldiers who perished in the great wars. There are replicas/disabled tanks/missiles/ships and other military related items. There is a museum which is memorial to the awardees of the bravery awards given to three branches military.
All-in-all a very memorable experience and it is a pity it is very less known and hardly visited by bangaloreans.

The National Military Memorial refers to a park in Bangalore, located next to the musical fountain of Indira Gandhi Park and Nehru Planetarium. Set up to inculcate feelings of patriotism and pride among the citizens for the armed forces, this memorial should be a top attraction.

Unfortunately, that is not the case and the main reason for it is the lack of maintenance. An underground exhibit has been closed a while back and does not seem to be reopening. The grass too is overgrown in places. While the park has a decent collection of models of armoured carriers, missiles and tanks, some of these models seem to be rusting. Considering the importance of this park, this aspect should be paid urgent attention to and the place should be popularized more.

Located just adjacent to Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain, it’s a nice place to visit especially with family and kids. It has been built in memory of great soldiers of India who sacrificed their lives for protecting the country. There are few models of planes and missiles , old tank, naval ships which can be source of attraction for the kids as well as adults.

Took a visiting relative to this first post-independence war memorial and wasn't disappointed. The indomitable fortitude stands as a tribute to all those martyrs that protected us back then. Needs improvement though, possible by more like us visiting.

The National Military Memorial is located close to the Planetarium. This piece of prime land in Bengaluru has been devoted to making it a place for increasing awareness amongst the general public about our Armed Forces. It has an old tank along with models of various missiles developed by DRDO and models of Naval ships. The place also has a walking and jogging track with benches for public to sit. A lot more can be done to make it a more viable tourist destination for people visiting Bengaluru.
