Visit to 1857 Martyrs Memorial , Meerut

Had the good fortune to offer my shradhanjali to the martyrs of the 1857 War of Independence at the “Shaheed Park” at Meerut. The 85 soldiers at Meerut fought the British at Meerut on 10th May 1857 . Mangal Pandey also belonged to the same regiment before he was transferred to Barrackpur. News of his execution at Barrackpur sparked off the battle at Meerut. What is very interesting is that the common man also executed the British soldiers at the Sadar Bazar, photo attached.

The martyrs memorial also houses a museum and a library which has paintings and models. If you are visiting Delhi, do make it a point to visit Meerut and pay your shradhanjali at the memorial.

Ayush
