This important burial ground, spans over 57 acres and was built to pay respect to many patriots who laid down their lives for the country. The ground is very serene and has a number of commemorative statues and stones. One of them is the Tomb of Unknown Soldier, which is a bronze statue depicting three guerillas, Man Woman and child. The statue pays homage to all the unidentified soldiers who gave their lives to the country. The Eternal Flame, which rests on top of a 40ft tower, is also the highest point in the ground. It was lit at the independence celebration of 1982 in respect for the soldiers. Two walls on both sides of the building are beautiful with its Murals, depicting the long history of Zimbabwe.

One will also find a museum near the entrance of the Burial ground, where one can get detailed information on the history of Zimbabwe, its colonial struggles along with artifacts and photographs.
