    Is the only thing in the North Caucasus an architectural ensemble combining a memorial complex with a museum exposition. The monument has been constructed in 1968 on means which were collected by youth of the North Caucasus and Transcaucasia. The museum building under the form reminds a pillbox built from ferro-concrete; near to it - a communal grave and a bowl of eternal fire. On the right, on a mountain slope the ferro-concrete plates symbolizing inaccessibility to the enemy of passes and tops of caucasus are driven in the earth, and over them, between two walls, the second bowl of eternal fire is uplifted.

    Monument building has been declared by youth, Komsomol.
