Formerly referred to as the “Cupid’s bow”, the Victoria War Memorial is a must-see Chennai attraction for more reasons than one. It was essential constructed as an ode to the victory of the Allied Armies during World War I (1914–1918). It subsequently went on to being the victory war memorial for World War II (1939–1945). Today in all, it acts a memorial to the aforementioned wars along with 1948 Kashmir Aggression, 1962 War with China and the Indo-Pakistan War.

Victory War Memorial Reviews & Ratings
Great and Strategic Location. Tall flag mast with our national flag bring patriotism at sight. Actually, it is a roundabout road helping to drive across different directions.
Beautiful mausoleum dedicated to the memory of martyrs who had fought in many wars that India was forced into. The place is in the middle of a busy road and adjacent to the gate 10 of Chennai port. You would see this but you won't look at it closely, that's what I had observed over the years. The place is designed like a traffic island. We couldn't find a proper entry way or a note about the monument. We went inside after jumping over a barricade. The atmosphere inside is calm and the traffic around us didn't bother us a lot. It is well maintained but there's no documents or note about the monument at the location. I won't suggest you to go to the spot to just visit this monument. But since attractions like marina beach and Napier bridge are around, you might want to take a detour and visit the spot. It's a nice place to get pictures. (That's what I think :) )
Oh WooW one more beauty of Worldwar second even today it is mainted by Indian army proud of them. Well groomed and flags are being hoisted regularly.
It was pretty much good.Victory War Memorial is located to the South of Fort St. George where the Flag Staff Road meets the Beach Road adjacent to the Island Ground. A solemn place in Memory Martyrsthose who laid down their lives in the WWI and WWII. Later the Names of those Martyrs who fought the 1948, 1962, 1965, 1971 and Kargil Wars were added. There is a Large Tri-colour Flag of India which inspires the visitors to salute the Armed Forces and Para Military Forces for their selfless service to the Nation. The intensity is at the peak when you stand at the Tower for a few minutes with moist eyes. But the problem at present is that it is not accessible now. The people around hardly help through guiding which way to go. Own Google map is the only solution.
It is good place to see but u can't go inside
