The National Martyrs' Monument (Jatiyo Smriti Shoudho) is a national monument in Bangladesh, set up in memory of those who died in the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971, which brought independence and separated Bangladesh from Pakistan. It is located in Savar, about 35 km northwest of the capital city, Dhaka. It was designed by Syed Mainul Hossain and built by Concord Group.

The monument consists of seven pairs of triangular-shaped walls or prisms, the outermost pair being the shortest in height while also being the widest in span; the inner pairs gradually change their aspect ratio and the innermost pair thus forms the peak point of the architecture.

The monument is surrounded by a vast expanse of land, which is landscaped with gardens, fountains, and walkways. There is also a museum on the site, which houses exhibits on the Bangladesh Liberation War.

The National Martyrs' Monument is a powerful and evocative symbol of the sacrifices made by the Bangladeshi people in their struggle for independence. It is a place of pilgrimage for Bangladeshis of all ages, and it serves as a reminder of the high price that was paid for freedom.

    This huge monument stands tall to acknowledge the ultimate sacrifices made by our heroes during the independence war in 1971. I visited the place couple of times, the first time during 1987. I was a kid, and the experience was awesome!
