Located 10 kilometers south of the capital city Windhoek, Heroes’ Acre is an official war memorial site in Namibia opened on August 26, 2002, to foster the spirit of patriotism and nationalism as well as to pass on the legacy of Namibia to future generations.

The monument is a symmetric polygon with a marble obelisk and a bronze statue of the Unknown Soldier at its center. The site also has parade grounds, a grandstand for 5,000 people, and a burial site with 174 tombs.
