Shaheed Minar, Dhaka

Shaheed Minar: This Monument is the symbol of Bengali Nationalism. It was built to commemorate the martyrs of historic Language Movement of 1952. Although this Movement was apparently for the recognition of Bangla as one of the state languages of the then Pakistan, it was in fact, the first outburst of popular movement against the Pakistani regime. All subsequent movements in Bangladesh leading to her independence in 1971 owe their origin to this movement and therefore, this monument has become a place of pilgrimage for millions of Bangladeshis.

National Martyrs’ Memorial, Savar

National Martyrs’ Memorial situated at  savar, about 36 km north-west of Dhaka symbolizes the valour and sacrifice of the Martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the libaration of Bangladesh. The main monument is composed of seven isosceles triamgular planes each varying in size in its height and base. The highest one has the  smallest base while the broadest base has the lowest height. The planes are folded at the middle and placed one after another. The highest point of the structure reaches 150 feet. This unique arrangement of the planes has created a structure that seems to change its configuration when viewed from different angles.(Sources: Tourism in Bangladesh)
