  • Longewala war memorial is a great place to know about the heroics of Indian army. Proud to be at a place managed with so much love and care by our Army. The museum tells a story of the bravery of 1971 war. It was a great experience to be here and know what happened this night when Pakistani army tried to enter inside India.must recommend.
  • Amazing experience visiting here. You get to know about one of the most memorable war in the human History. One of the most iconic visit of my life till date.
