Ins Khukri Memorial - Review
Just south of Charkratirth Beach, on an overlook over the sea, is a simple and understated memorial. In the 1971 war between India and Pakistan, torpedoes fired by Pakistani submarine sank frigate INS Khukri. The . Captain Mahendra Nath Mulla Mahavir Chakra refused to abandon ship. He, 18 officers and a crew of 176 sailors went down with it. The memorial briefly tells their story, and lists the names of those who perished in the tragedy. Right next to the memorial is an open airamphitheatre. The memorial is a favorite place from where to catch sunrises and sunsets.

Ins Khukri Memorial, Diu Reviews
It is small memorial of INS Khurki, a Indian navy ship. The place has an amazing panoramic view of the ocean. When we visited this place in Feb 2018 some renovation work was going on to develop this place into a nice spot. It can also serve as a nice spot to sit around sunset to enjoy the views of the sea.

Less explored place. Very serene. If you are on Diu trip, must visit this place. Historically significant place. INS Khukri is the only Indian war vessel that we lost in war till date. Model of INS Khukri is on display at the memorial. Also names of naval officers and sailors who went down with the warship are engraved on stonewalls. There is an amphitheatre too. When I visited this place in Sept, 2016 it was under redevelopment.
Good place to relax and enjoy the evening sea breeze. Watching the huge sea waves splashing against the rocks is very refreshing. Good getaway from routine hectic work, leaves you mentally refreshed and relaxed.
Beautiful place to visit on your trip to Diu. Sunset point is also there so I will recommend you to visit this place in the evening. The beach there is also good. You will find fewer people there on the beach so you can enjoy a lot. Overall a very good place to visit.
Beautiful sea view, love to spend time over there with friends. Calm and clean place. Have a small beach there but I would recommend not to swim over there as it's has lot of rock. Best time is in rainy season.
