Nice place to visit on a walk

It's a good spot on the downs to have a nice walk to and get away from the traffic and crowds, beautiful views.

We parked just off the A23 and walked just over a mile across the fields. By doing this you get a good sense of Brighton behind you and the aspect of the memorial. It was in fact a site of cremation for Sikh and Hindu soliders who had been wounded in the First World War and who had received unsuccessful... More

The walk to get to the Chattri is lovely and only takes about 15mins Because it's on the Sussex Downs a little away from roads, the Memorial has a special quietness and its such a surprise to see an Indian Dome in this setting. It commemorates brave Indian soldiers who fought for GB in the Great War, were wounded and... More

To find this lovely spot take come off the A23 and take the turning up onto the A27 as if you were heading to Lewes. Rather than join the A27 cross straight over the dual carriageway towards the burger van and you will signs left to the RSPCA animal rescue centre and right toThe Chattri. Drive 100 yards up and...

We walked from Ditchling Beacon to the Chattri. Great views all the way, and very little in the way of steep climbs - it's essentially along a pair of ridges. The spot itself is lovely - very quiet with only the butterflies for company. We drove, but on the weekends it would be easy to get the bus from Brighton... More

Worth seeing if your in the Royal Pavillions vicinity. The history surrounding The Chattri was interesting to read and also we enjoyed the history about it that was on display in the Royal Pavillions with the vintage photography.

It is worth to see the original cremation site of our Indian friends from the 1st World War and originally open by HRH Edward Prince of Wales on 1 Feb 1921 - on a nice day take a glass of something and a good picnic

In some ways the very fact that you cannot easily stumble upon The Chattri is part of its simple appeal. A well maintained memorial in the middle of nowhere, set amidst rolling chalk hills, this is a quiet, dignified place celebrating the sacrifice of people thousands of miles from home. The back story is absolutely worth reading and understanding, and... More

It is often forgotten that some of the first deployments of Imperial troops in France in World War One were from the sub-continent. This monument on the Downs is a spot sacred to the memory of those who died many miles from their places of birth. Visit with respect and understanding.
