The War Memorial on Beach road just opposite the Chennai port was built to commemorate the Victory of India over different wars viz . WWI, WWII, The Indo-Pak war, The Chinese Agression, and The Kashmir Agression. A circular structure from outside – You will have to mount the gigantic circular steps to reach the tall tower . As you walk around the memorial you will see inscriptions engraved into the wall – in different languages – expressing gratitude to those who laid down their lives for us in the war. Well maintained, with a small garden of flowers in the circumference – the War Memorial is a place that should be visited more often.
