The renovated memorial stands very close to the monument’s original location. It consists of an enclosed oval, paved and cobblestone plaza that provides a place for contemplation and reflection. “It also features a bronze plaque with the names of all the victims. The plaque is oriented to the east, in the direction of Ireland, where the tragedy occurred.” (“Air India Memorial Re-Dedicated in Ottawa on National Day of Remembrance for Victims of Terrorism”)
