Shaheed Minar, an imposing structure in the heart of the city, epitomises the invincible patriotic spirit of Manipuris who sacrificed their lives in the Anglo-Manipuri War of 1891. Also known as the Martyr’s Memorial, this towering minar is located at the northern end of the Bir Tikendrajit Park and symbolises the supremacy of the erstwhile kingdom of Manipur. The minar commemorates martyrs like Bir Tikendrajit, General Thangal and many others, who were hanged to death on 13th August, 1891.

The minaret features three vertical beams clasped together at the top. The apex of the structure, which is characterised by three mythical dragons, is quite a sight to behold. Adding to the overall appeal of the minar is its beautiful environs that surround this structure.
