This memorial is straight in front of the ocean. It is very clean and great from architectural POV. This has its own immense beauty to offer to viewers.

This is a well maintained memorial. Perhaps because no one goes inside. We took some snaps standing on the road. Nothing very impressive.

The French War Memorial dedicated to the Indian soldiers who laid down their lives in the first World War. The memorial is right opposite the Mahatma Gandhi statue along the promenade. Worth a visit. Not much to do here though.
