This war memorial is slightly different than the many you see around the former USSR. It has more thought and grief to it than the usual victory monuments.

It is about Afghanistan war. There are names who died for their country as martyr. You must visit and pray for them

One of the symbols of the city, and a must-see for history lovers. A really solemn but heroic representation of the war.
