Built in memory of those British and Indian soldiers, who either died or went missing during 1857 . Their names are listed here . The place is surrounded by too much crowded construction all around .

The Mutuny Memorial is an important and well maintained record of the three month siege of Delhi in 1857 following the outbreak of the Indian Mutiny. A pity that the trees have been left to obscure the view the defenders would have had of the old city walls and the Kashmir Gate - which was eventually stormed on 14th September 1857. We'll worth a visit.

History depends upon who has written it & when & this monument is a perfect example of this! It was built by the ruling British class as a memorial to their soldiers who died in the 1857 war with the Indians who later called it the `War of Independence`.It was erected in 1863 & is located in the present Rani Jhansi Road close to the Hindu Rao Hospital.I had gone there for my interest in the 1857 history but for a common man it does not offer any architectural interest or beauty!

This Gothic style memorial is a tapering tower raised on a base with two levels.The outer walls have profuse decorations & wrought iron railings on its lower steps.The tower appears circular from inside with a staircase for climbing to the top with a marble cross there.A marble slab has the inscription of the soldiers killed with a long list of their names at the bottom.But later history changed all this perspective.On the 25th anniversary of Indian Independence in 1972 it was renamed as `Ajitgarh`.Another plaque was fixed & this memorial was converted in to a memorial for those who laid down their lives fighting their colonial masters.

First, how to reach the memorial. This is very near to Hindu Rao Hospital on what is called Ridge road.
When you reach there, it is possible that you will find a lock at the gate. We found the lock and got disappointed. When we were looking inside the memorial through the gate, we noticed a guard who willingly opened the gate. When asked why it was locked, he explained his helplessnes saying the memorial is more visited by drug addicts and young lovers, rather than genuine tourists. This makes him keep it locked and he opens it for tourists.
Be that as it may, memorial is a good example of Gothic architecture, but as it was built by the British for those who fought for them, including Indian soldiers of their army, against those who fought the British in 1857, Indians who fought for freedom, are termed here as enemies.
On 25th anniversary of Indian freedom in 1972, Indian government put a plaque saying that enemy mentioned at the memorial were immortal martyrs for Indian freedom.
Overall it is a beautiful monument. Sadly, it is in extreme disrepair and portions of the memorial are crumbling and are a physical hazard to the visitors. We could see falling pieces of the memorial and structure seem quite unsafe.

And I will go back again. My driver friend and I were the only visitors there at the time, but a security guard was on hand to tell us more about the memorial and just be kind and helpful. It was a well cared for and quiet, peaceful place, reflecting it's somber purpose. Set among trees, with plenty of birds and the occasional monkey.
After only learning about this memorial from web browsing things to see in Delhi, I am very glad I made the effort to see it and spend some quality time there.

A beautiful war memorial built by the British in honour of the soldiers who died in the 1857 siege of Delhi. It is located atop the Northern Ridge hills of Delhi University and offers a beautiful view of the city at sunset.
History here is misinterpreted and the monument is now named as Ajitgarh, dedicated to native soldiers instead.

Shame on India for neglecting this historic monument. Yes it was erected by the victorious (and vengeful) British, and it represents the triumph of the imperial power. But that is a part of India's history, and - as the plaque says - the 'enemy' of 1857 fought for India's freedom. So why is this extraordinary edifice left to crumble - it will surely fall down one day. It's well worth the hike out (but beware the awful traffic jams on Rani Jhansi Marg, aggravated by the shambolic Metro works. See this before it's too late!

next to Aazadpur mandi this is a memorial of national importance which is wasted due to the maintenance issues and pollution , used by youth to hang out and locals dirty the place , however it has its historic value.

The Mutiny Memorial, now known as Fateharh, is a memorial situated in front of Old Telegraph Building, Kashmiri Gate, Delhi. It was built in memory of all those who had fought in the Delhi Field Force, British and Indian, during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
Erected by the Public Works Department at government expense in 1863 the memorial was hastily designed and constructed. It received much public criticism on completion.
In 1972, the 25th anniversary of India's Independence, the Indian Government renamed the monument 'Fatehgarh' and erected a plaque stating that the 'enemy' mentioned on the memorials were 'immortal martyrs for Indian freedom'.
It's pretty well preserved but closed to public due to some security issues - as per the security guard posted there. The kind man obliged us when we requested.
