Event Details:

To mark 65th Republic Day of India in a memorable and significant way, IIK organized a tour to “War Memorial of Korea” with great enthusiasm. The wartime picture galleries and equipment at the memorial was an amazing sight. IIKians were overwhelmed by the 3D and 4D experience of the Korean war time movies. The grounds of the War Memorial of Korea were once the headquarters of the Korean Infantry. Many experts from different fields were consulted numerous times and exhaustive research was done in order to complete the exhibits. This memorial is the largest of its kind in the world. Exhibits inside the building display equipment used during the Korean War in such a way as to invite comparison between the items. Large weaponry and equipment used by different countries during World War II and the Vietnam War are also on display. In the Large Equipment Exhibit on the second floor, many kinds of defense industry equipment and both real and model weapons are displayed.
