Lonely Planet review
Created with the help of the North Koreans, Tishreen (October) War Panorama a memorial to the 1973 war with Israel is quite extraordinary. The tour takes in paintings of various historical battles, a film, the moving panoramic painting, a 3D mural and diorama depicting the Israeli devastation of the town, and a room filled with portraits of former president Hafez al-Assad.
You'll gain a great insight into the battle over the Golan Heights and the fighting in and around the town of Quneitra, which isn't otherwise possible; it's definitely worth seeing if you're planning a visit to Quneitra.
The panorama is located about 2km northeast of the centre, on the road to the Harasta bus terminal; take a Harasta microbus and ask to be let out when you spot the plaza on the opposite side of the highway filled with captured Israeli jeeps, tanks and fighter planes.
