The idea of building a memorial in order to commemorate a tragic event is known as ‘Dark Tourism’. The concept of Dark Tourism has been successfully applied by countries like New York, France, and Italy where memorials have been built at places associated with death and tragedy.

These places include places like Jalianwala Bagh, Cellular Jail, Gandhi Smriti, Bhuj, among other sites.
