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.

Was a bit difficult to locate & once we got there , felt it was worth the walk . A simple but attractive structure . Visit if you have the time else skip as you wouldn't have missed much !

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.
