You can only see it from outside. We went in the evening for a walk and this place is located on the way. You can see it from distance. Not sure if we will be allowed inside in the morning times.

Its about showing your patriotism in there and nothing much, but the place is well maintained and you can go through the history behind this Memorial.

Saw it in the evening when it was lit up. A good spot for clicks, views and selfies. A reminder of the sacrifices made by soldiers of yesteryear’s.

A must place to visit in Pondicherry. A memorial that talks about a part of history and a place to pay respect

The French War Memorial is Just opposite of Rock beach. They don't allow to enter inside. That was built in 1971 to commemorate the soldiers who died during First World War.

It is located on the main promenade and is easily visible from outside. It is beautifully lit and would recommend seeing it if you are on the promenade.

My daughter wanted to visit this place. So we did. And we came back feeling completely clueless - there is no access to the memorial (or we could not find it) - no note, no plaque.. Just a slice of land with a structure in the middle.

You might wonder, well C, what did you expect from this place? - well, we expected something befitting the name "French War Memorial".

We just viewed it from the gate and took a pic. You could show it to your kids as you are finishing your walk on the beach.
