National Martys Monument in Savar

On the way to Dhamrai, we stopped to visit the National Martyrs Monument at Savar. It is a towering, concrete pyramid-like structure built to honour those who died in the fight for Bangladesh independence in 1971. More than 3 million Bangladeshis gave their life and today the monumnet is a place of reverence for them especially since there are mass graves for the unnamed victims located there.

It has a very neat and trim garden - an unusual sight in Bangladesh. Only the canal crimson water lilies were blooming.
