Kranti Teerth Mission of the Memorial

The memorial of Shyamji Krishna Varma was a dream for the Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Narendra Modi. His belief that a society which forgets its history, its culture and its values, is doomed drives this mission.
The Hon. Chief Minister had promised to build a national-level memorial honouring Shyamji Krishna Varma and also pay tribute to the many great revolutionaries who made supreme sacrifices and laid down their lives to see their country free.
