The Maqam Echahid
Algeria celebrated its Independence day on the 5th of July. Today we remember their independence with The Maqam Echahid, a remarkable monument erected in remembrance of the Algerian war for independence. First opened to the public in 1982, 20 years after Algeria’s independence this is one of Algiers’ most conspicuous landmarks.
Widely known and revered as an iconic concrete monument, this historical site was built in the town of El Madania, overlooking Algiers, the capital and largest city of Algeria.
