This is situated on the beach road. So when you will walk down the road you can see this magnificent architecture on the go.

One can see the French War Memorial during visit to Promenade beach. The memorial can only be seen from outside. You can also take a few pictures here.

Like most things that the French have built in many parts of the world, they are known for this war memorial is really classic. It is on the sea front in the French quarter in the beautiful City of Pondicherry now renamed Pudducherry.

There isn't much you could see or experience here. Located quiet close to the ashram, Its a place with historic value. You are not allowed to go beyond the gates, so all that you get to see is the structure from road itself.

Historically important place but not allowed beyond the gates. Can view from outside and if you want, can take some shots. Good structure.

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
