A memorial sculpture ‘Angikar’ has been erected in front of Hasan Ali Government High School ground on the side of Muktijoddha Road in Chandpur city to commemorate the martyrs of 1971. The architect of the sculpture is Syed Abdullah Khalid, the artist of ‘Invincible Bengal’. The height of this sculpture is 15 feet with an altar made of cement, stone and iron.
Its strong fist is a symbol of the determination of the pro-independence people, and the weapon is a symbol of gaining independence and the power to defend it. The combination of weapons with the determination of the people has created a strong commitment. This beautiful sculpture was made in 1989 with the efforts of the then Deputy Commissioner of Chandpur SM Shamsul Alam.
It is considered as the central memorial of Chandpur. Every year, Independence Day, Victory Day and other national days are started by laying a wreath at the foot of ‘Angikar’.
Lots of people from different parts of the city gather here every afternoon to evening. The eye-catching art-style of this sculpture fascinates the art connoisseurs. The moonlight night makes the promise look amazing in the moonlight.
