The Shaka Memorial is a provincial heritage site in Stanger in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. It marks the resting place of the Zulu King Shaka near the site where he was assassinated by his half-brothers Dingane and Mhlangana while sitting on a rock near the barracks at his capital Dukuza.
Adjacent to the memorial is the rock on which King Shaka was alleged to be sitting at the time of his assassination on 22 September 1828. It was rolled across the street from its original site to where it now lies. The date is commemorated with a national public holiday marked by a gathering at the memorial in honour of King Shaka led by the Zulu king, his warriors and dignitaries.
