This historic monument is in a state of utter neglect. Given the significance of the place it should have been maintained with care.

This place used to offer the best views of the city. But not anymore, They do not allow you to climb the tower nowadays, because many people have used the height to fall to their deaths.

Gracing the vast green fields of the Maidan with its pristine white,160-foot-high presence, the Shaheed Minar is among Kolkata’s most visited sites.
The cloud-kissing monument was built in early eighteenth century by British East India Company. It was renamed as SHAHEED MINAR in the memory of martyrs of the Indian freedom movement after the country achieved independence.

Located at the Esplanade Bus Terminus (also next to the Esplanade Metro Station), this historic monument is very beautifully lit up at night.

I felt really sad to see the place is littered and filled with hawkers, a remembrance of the martyrs of the war, hardly anyone pays respect there

At Esplanade, we saw the pre-historic trams on the roads, and out of the smoggy night, we saw a brightly lit Shaheed Minar.

Shaheed Minar, whose meaning in English stands for, ‘tower for the martyrs’ towers above the Maidan area. The Monument was erected to commemorate Major-general David Ochterlony, commander of the British East India Company’s main force in the Gurkha War of 1816.Rallies.

We walked in the park near Shaheed Minar- Beautifully lit park with fountains.
