A very small memorial along the beach road dedicated to the Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the french in WW1. You can take a couple of snaps and selfies. Nothing much to see here.

Nothing so much look at for a tourist apart from visiting the history. One can easily skip this one.

Located on the Goubert Avenue, opposite the Gandhi Mandapam, the War Memorial is dedicated to the First World War martyrs. The soldiers' names are listed on a bronze plaque. The Memorial looks beautiful at night, when it is lit up.

You need to see it from outside. There is a fencing around. There is nothing much to see there. The sea and the road are more interesting.
