Martyr's Memorial, Patna is located opposite the Old Secretariat of the city. The memorial was constructed in honor of seven young freedom fighters who laid down their lives in the struggle for India's independence during the Quit India Movement of 1942.
It is believed that Dr. Anugrah Narayan, a well-known follower of Mahatma Gandhi's ideals, was arrested in Patna during an attempt to hoist the tricolor during the British period, as a reaction to his arrest, seven students raised the national flag on their own. Tried to hoist but was killed by the British. The foundation stone of the martyr memorial was laid by the Governor of Bihar, Shri Jai Ram Das Daulat Ram on 15 August 1947. The statue is made of bronze and displays seven students wearing a dhoti-kurta and a Gandhi cap.
