The Indomitable Spirits.

National Mausoleum or the National Martyrs' Memorial is the national monument of Bangladesh. It is the symbol in the memory of the velour and the sacrifice of all those who sacrificed their lives in the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971. 




Plans for the monument were initiated in 1976. Following the site selection, road and land development, a nationwide design competition was held in June, 1978. Following evaluation of the 57 submissions, Syed Mainul Hossain's design was chosen. The main structure and the artificial lake along with other facilities were completed in 1982. It was inaugurated on 16 December 1982.
The monument is composed of 7 isosceles triangular pyramid shaped structures, with the middle one being the tallest. The highest point of the monument is 150 feet. There is an artificial lake, and several mass graves in front of the main monument.
