The landmark of Old Ziro is the Ziro Putu. There are dozens of hillocks and dunes in the whole area, but Ziro Putu is the biggest of all. Till 1972, the hill was camp of the Indian Army when they left Ziro to participate in the Indo-Pakistan War. Bangladesh was liberated in the war but the whole battalion of soldiers who lived in this hill is said to have lost their lives.
One can get a very good view of all the Apatani villages from the hill. Now, a government guest house has been constructed on the hill. The picture above is a view of Lempia and Tajang village from near the guest house.
