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.

This is a great place to walk to on a Spring or Autumn week end with a picnic. When you get to the Chattri, there are things to look at, drap over and take pictures of; the views over the Downs are breath taking. Well worth the walk. Enjoy.

Dedicated to the Indian soldiers who fought on the Western Front during the First World War. It seems we may have lost the war if it was not for the British Indian Army. They gave their life so today we can have the life we enjoy today. I find it a place that make me think of how fortunate we... More
