I am always interested in war memorials, but this place doesn't offer much. The architect/structure is decent, but nothing going out of the way for. There is no information/plaques to read, so save your time and go elsewhere.

If you have visited the old capitol building, then this is a great side trip cause it is right next door. I didnt go inside as i was limited on time. But the outside and inner courtyard are beautiful Worth a quick visit.

What a beautiful monument. It gave me goosebumps reading the inscriptions. And that was only outside. We couldn't go in as the place was closed. Don't forget to see the "Thank you train" down the hill in the back.
