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.

Its on the promenade and possibly one is not allowed to enter inside. There must be some commemorative ceremony to look out for.

just take a moment to stop by. Like any other war memorial but serene and well maintained. Walking by just give it a glance and stop for a second

I believe you can only see this place from outside, however it will certainly be nice to see it up and close. In the white town area and you can easily cover it with other monuments in the same area.

All the places at white town are nearby and you can see the French War Memorial from the outside. When we visited during the evening, it was closed so not sure if anyone is allowed to go inside.
