This is a wonderful monument, which is a tribute to the fallen soldiers of the French army that fought bravely to make Pondicherry a FRENCH territory before it was handed over to the government of India.

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.

Set a little way back from the seashore. It has a definite presence. Well maintained and fitting tribute.

I am not sure if you are allowed inside this part/memorial. You can at max stand infront of the gate and take a Selfie or Picture of yourselves

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.
