National War Memorial Pune

National War Memorial (also called Southern Command Museum) is a museum constructed in memory of Indian soldiers who lost their lives in different post-independence wars.

The museum opens a window into the past of the Indian Army’s Southern Command Wing. And it pays tribute to the soldiers of other armed forces too. It has arms, uniforms and various other war mementos.

The MIG 23 BN fighter jet used during the Kargil War is the major attraction here. But it also has Vijayanta (Indian Army’s first main battle tank) and INS Trishul warship on display.

It has a wide memorial wall with the names of all the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives. And right in the center, you’ll see a tall memorial tower which captures everyone’s attention. It has a fluttering Indian flag, with four other flags representing the Indian Army, Indian Navy, Indian Air Force, and the Southern Command Wing.

The National War Memorial and Museum fills you with patriotism and pain, and a sense of pride in being an Indian.
