Amar Jawan Jyoti
The Amar Jawan Jyoti in Jaipur, Rajasthan is a monument located at Jan Path on the Jaipur Nagar Nigam road. Built to commemorate the soldiers and martyrs from Jaipur who served India during wartime, it is known for its flames that never stop burning.
A structure built in pink sandstone on a black marble pedestal, it was built primarily to pay tribute to all those brave soldiers who fought during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971. It features an upturned rifle covered by a warhead which is surrounded on four corners by torches that burn perpetually and light up the place. These undying flames are representative of the eternal spirit of these brave soldiers who are never forgotten owing to their courage and sacrifice.
In the evening, the structure is lit up in colours of the Indian flag. There is a cenotaph here in gold which contains words spoken by the soldiers. There is also a light and sound show in the evening, which is organised in two languages. Moreover, to know more about the structure and about the wars, visit the on-site museum.
