The French War Memorial is a reminder of those brave soldiers who laid down their lives, for their country during the First World War. It is located within the seaside promenade stretch and can be viewed from the road itself. Nothing extraordinary but worth a picture if you are already in the vicinity.

This place has a garden around it where you can spend some time. Rest there is nothing else to do here. You can also just see it from outside while walking on the Goubert Avenue.

Pondicherry is a fantastic city as this is where Indians and French architecture and styles merge kn your surroundings. The memorial is nothing architecturally amazing but reminds you of how diverse and unique south India is

You should not expect it to sit in mid of a garden. the memorial is located adjacent to the promenade road and you can see the monument as such. the monument is well maintained and thanks for the govt for it.

Built in 1971 to pay homage to the martyrs of the first world war is certainly worth a visit(most preferably during sunrise). I wish I was allowed inside to take a close look. But nonetheless it was... More
