The Government of Punjab had conceptualized a mega project named as Punjab Freedom Movement Memorial in commemoration of the unparalleled sacrifices of Indian’s & Punjabi’s for independence of India. The project was aimed at setting up integrated memorial complex for the heroes of the freedom struggle on 25 acres of land in the periphery of Kartarpur. The total estimated project cost is Rs. 315 cr.
The Memorial is aimed at disseminating knowledge about the rich cultural heritage of the State in the minds of youngsters. The site, which falls on the Jalandhar-Amritsar national highway, was carefully selected by the State Government keeping in mind its easy accessibility to visitors and to add another tourist destination for those on way to the Golden Temple. Punjab Freedom Movement Memorial Foundation was formed by Government of Punjab for implementation of this prestigious project
