Peaceful and sobering

I've seen this from my bedroom window for years but only recently took the time to visit. An amazing location on the downs and very peaceful yet sobering. Worth the walk.

An unexpected and interesting little place. Really close to my home, though I'd never been before. Well worth the visit.

There are various routes to the memorial. It isn't accessible by road. Such a peaceful place to visit, lovely views, pick a fine clear day.

You reach the Chattri on foot: a most beautiful downs walk, when you arrived, you may wish that it was better kept but the silence and the simplicity of the place lets you rest and think of the sacrifices the Indian soldiers of WW1 gave. and how much they deserve not to be forgotten. An eerie place, of great beauty.

This is a lovely place I have often visited with friend Andy and Charles and London friends. The countryside is stunning the further away you get from the motorway and I marking it only average as I don't want hordes of others to find it! Moving place.

What a beautiful day to visit Holt Hill above Brighton and discover The Chattri Brighton Herald 29 Jan. 1921 "To those who do not know the history, this chattri, so essentially Indian in general design and in every detail, may seem a thing alien to the open down land scenery in which it is set. It is artistically appropriate that... More

This place used to be the Cremating Grounds for the Indian soldiers who lost their lives in the World War 1. Now it is a memorial to honour them. It is a simple structure in the shape of an Umbrella, which is called Chattri in Indian Language Hindi. I did not realise how remote the Chattri was. It takes good... More

Superb views from this delightful memorial site. Romantic style, but windy! . Lovely surroundings for quiet walk and reflection. Interesting history of World War. It is especially a lovely atmosphere and touching event at the annual Memorial Service. On that day, you can drive through the field and park very close by. Otherwise it is a rugged walk.
