The beauty of Puducherry embraces your heart while the glory of the War Memorials there, namely, Kargil War Memorial and French War Memorial. Situated on the Beach Street, these structures will surely touch your soul and you will feel the pride of being an Indian. It was constructed to honor the sacrifices of those brave French soldiers who fought for our country and laid their lives during World War.

This is a tribute to soldiers losing their lives in WW one. It is a very simple structure showing a soldier with his gun. The memorial is located on the main promenade and is a place to visit.

The French War Memorial was constructed in honor of those soldiers who lost their lives in World War I. In the middle of four stark white columns - two on either side - stands a lone life-size statue of a soldier leaning on a rifle. Inscribed above him the words, Aux combattants des Indes Françaises morts pour la patrie, 1914-1918. The statue is illuminated during the annual commemoration celebrated on July 14th - Bastille Day.
