This memorial is on the Goubert Avenue (also known as the promenade). This place can be covered with the French memorial, the Gandhi statue. Happy that our heroes are being commemorated by the government.

This memorial should have been given a more important location. It is often missed as it is at one end of the beach road without a view to the beach from it. It is well0lit during Kargil day.

This is another memorial erected in the memory of the soldiers who died in the battle of Kargil. Located right at the promenade, this does not take additional effort to visit.

When you enter the Promenade, you'd see this memorial after 50 metres or so. You may tend to overlook this memorial, but keep looking for it and maybe stand there in silence for a minute or two if you like :)

Its just at the start of the Rock Beach. Best time to visit would be in early morning or late afternoon since in the noon it gets very hot.
