Mutiny Memorial / Ajitgarh

This monument is called Ajitgarh, meaning the Bastion of the Undefeated.

Originally called it the "Mutiny Memorial", it was built in 1863 to commemorate British and Indian soldiers killed in the 1857 War of Independence in Delhi. The government of India renamed it Ajitgarh in 1972 and re-dedicated it to the Indian martyrs of 1857.

Our Mutiny Walk explores the momentous series of events, conflicts and battles that took place in Delhi in 1857 and changed history forever.
