Historical obviously, can take few photos. Nothing much to see. If you are at rock beach you can visit this place easily. I believe you cant enter, just see and take photos from a distance.

If you've been to 'War memorials' elsewhere then you can even skip this. Visit only if you want to put a tick mark on places you've visited during your stay in Pondicherry

This war memorial is neatly maintained with good lighting. Unfortunately as the gates were cloed, could not go in and see. Its on the beach road and when you are taking a walk a place to see.

It just needs a look and you are done with the visit. Nothing much to see. Doors were locked so you can't even go inside.
