Built at the cost of rupees 20 Crores, the memorial is a national integration symbol since it showcases a fusion of Indian and Mughal designs and the foyer bears a resemblance to the India Gate, Delhi. The architecture of the dome reveals aspects of Rashtrapati Bhavan, whereas the gateway displays design of Brihadiswara Temple in Thanjavur. The interior of the memorial is engraved with Dr Kalam’s life and work, including the Pokhran nuclear test, and an installation of a replicated missile to celebrate his inputs to the space science.

Earlier the conditions of the site, where the people’s president was buried were in severely deteriorated conditions, but with this memorial, the conditions have improved drastically!
