The place has been very well maintained. Looks very attractive from outside. Information maintained there were good, but were expecting it to be more informative that what was available there. Good go for 15-20 mins.

This war memorial is for French soldier who had fought during World War I. You can't miss it if you taking a walk on beach road. Hopefully Indian soldiers will get a dedicated war memorial soon...

Nothing great..just a four pillar memorial on the walk. Rarely saw any people looking or even taking a photograph. More and other interesting things to see around.

its worth a view, a memorial away from the homeland, still paying a homage to those who sacrificed their lives on the battlefield, a tribute worth visiting..

This place is on the same road that leads to Promenade. Historic point of view it is very important place. For a tourist this is just a 5 mins stop over

A statue that could be found at Promenade Beach. Since, it is a French War Memorial, it is quite close to the French consulate. A must visit if you want to rejig your World War Memories.

You can just have a glance while walking on the beach road. This is opposite the Le cafe. a very simple white monument. Not sure if people are allowed to go inside or not.
