“War Memorial to Indian soldiers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

If you like a good walk in the downs with a pleasant destination for a sit down and meditation, this is a fine place for you. Good graphic pictures of the Indian soldiers contribution to the war and descriptions of their hospitalisation around Brighton

“A Peaceful Vista and Enchanting Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

It is a bit of a walk to get here and better on a still sunny day, but it is serene and a good place for contemplation.
The peace and quite reflects its past.

“Nice walk over the rolling hills with views of Brightob”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The Chattri makes for a lovely walk if you only have a couple of hours to spare. The views back across brighton particualrly as the sun starts the set is lovely. The memorial itself is interesting and really very beautiful.

“Pleasant gardens surround the memorial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Its a long walk or cycle to the Chattri as its set right in the middle of the hills on the south downs ner Brighton. I found it to be peaceful but meloncholic after all its a memorail to the Indian soldiers who were cremated here that had passed away whilst at the royal pavillion when it was being used as a hospital during the war. A peaceful place, well kept and with nice views, looking back down towards Brighton.

“pleasant day's walking on the South Downs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

A pleasant day's walking on the South Downs from the Jack & Jill windmills to the Chattri monument (to Indian troops killed in the first world war) then on to Patcham and return. Mostly gentle walking, generally well signposted, note one field on the route had rather docile cows in it, and we lost our way at one point with a 45 minute detour. The monument itself was an interesting aspect of local history, had an informative display board and the grounds were well looked after, though the monument surround could do with a clean. It's not that well signposted though.
