There is easy parking just off the A23 and a signed posted walk with information boards. Its a good walk up the hill and then the Chattri comes into view.
This is a lovely memorial to all the Indian soldiers that died in the 1st World War. It is on the Sussex Downs on one of the walks. Once a year in June there is a very moving service held to remember the soldiers that gave their lives. People come to this from all over the country.
This is a place you can only get to by walking across the Downs as there is no road or car park nearby - and while this may present a challenge for some if people are able to take an approx 15 to 20mins walk across the Downs then its well worth doing so. Being away from the roads means... 更多

The Chatri was built for the fallen Hindu Soldiers in WW1, many of whom had been taken th Brighton's Royal Pavilion, which was used as a hospital during the war. It is in a very peaceful , beautiful setting on the downs near Patcham. With beautiful views across the South Down's.
This Indian war memorial just outside Patcham on the Sotuh Downs was tricky to find, but probably misreading signage was our fault! The final destination was so worth the walk. The views over Brighton are amazing and the memorial itself is beautiful and stand for so much. In memorium to the Indian and Sikh soldiers who died in the First... 更多
I've seen this from my bedroom window for years but only recently took the time to visit. An amazing location on the downs and very peaceful yet sobering. Worth the walk.
