It is a beautiful monument and the best thing about it is that there are some guides that are there just to explain the history behind this monument.

This was very moving armed forces displayed the changing of the guard the monument was breath taking not able to describe in one go. Breathe taking.

This is a wonderful place to reflect on how much has been given our country by those who have served in armed conflicts throughout our history. The respect shown by those guarding the memorial, the bagpiper leading the formations during the changing of the guards, and the somber attitude of the visitors to the memorial, a quiet and dignified spot in the middle of a busy intersection, contribute to a moving experience.

This is a stunning memorial, the skill of the artists involved is extremely evident. It is one of those sculptures that can captivate one for hours and hours. Only quibble is I saw several tourists being quite disrespectful and standing on the memorial for photos. if you do so, don't be surprised if a rather cross solider yells at you and rightly so!
