Ahead of Hemis Monastery is the Trishul War Memorial. U see an overview. It is about 50 kms from Leh on the road to Manali.

Front view. Names of those who made the supreme sacrifice inscribed in stone.

Memorial wall have phrases - this one seems to be in Punjabi with translation below. Saw a similar inscription at the Siachen War Memorial addressed to Shivji, which were the words of the 10th Sikh Guru, Govind Singhji. Do not know the author of these touching words.
