The memorial, erected on April 3, 1937, by governor Crociccha, is a tribute to the bravery of soldiers who had fought and lost their lives in the First World War. This monument immortalises the strong Indian presence in the World War for which homage is paid to those brave hearts on every Bastille Day as space is beautifully lit and decorated. Behind the memorial, there is also a bronze bas-relief representing the arrival of Dupleix in Pondicherry in 1742.
