Maharaja Ranjit Singh War Museum, Ludhiana, Punjab

Location: GT road, Ludhiana, Punjab

The largest city in the state of Punjab, Ludhiana boasts of housing one of the most popular places to see in the state – Maharaja Ranjit Singh War Museum. Spreading across four acres in area, this museum came into existence in the year 1999. The Punjab Government constructed the museum as a gesture of tribute to the courageous soldiers who struggled and laid their lives during various wars and battles that have been fought so far. Keeping up the museum with the International standards was the prime focus of the Government of Punjab.

Located on the GT Road in Ludhiana, Maharaja Ranjit Singh War Museum not only pays homage to the soldiers but also educates the citizens of India about the role of  defense. A majestic statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh sitting proudly on a throne welcomes you as you enter the museum. It has 12 galleries with exhibits of different divisions like the Ancient History Gallery, Post Independence History Gallery, War Hero’s Gallery, Air Force and Navy Gallery etc. The main hall displays pictures of the various Chakra winners, Chief Marshals, Generals and Admirals of Punjab. Two glorious lawns exhibit trophies of the Navy, Army and Air Force.

A major attraction of this museum is the light and sound show which narrates the story of war of independence and the role of the gallant soldiers of Punjab in it. The show also creates a sense of nationalism among the people. You can also have a look at the number of battle tanks, Anti-aircraft guns, an old Sukhoi and an INS Vikrant model placed around  the museum for the visitors to see. The Government of Punjab has been spending a good amount of money for the maintenance of the  Maharaja Ranjit Singh War Museum to immortalize the memories of independence. This conscientious effort definitely calls for a visit to this honorable museum.
