Kirkee War Cemetery Reviews & Ratings
It is the war memorial in the Second World War memorials. It is maintained very well. In this place 629 bodies are buried here from different countries. You can see the details of the soldiers and there country. There names are also marked on the stone pice. There are beautiful gardens and walk ways. You can find seats to sit there boundaries. There are people who where working here to maintain the garden. You can enter here without any restrictions. And it is really a nice place if you have a chance to visit there.
A well maintained, beautifully landscaped, war cemetery. It is just next to the Mula River. In order to enter, you just need to ask permission from the manger who can be found in the building just opposite to the cemetery. As you enter, make an entry in the visitors register. This cemetery, revives the respect for the fallen men & women, and our uniformed men & women in the borders, protecting us selflessly. The atmosphere is filled with patriotism which is almost palpable. A must visit place, & if you have enough time, make sure you read the writings in each gravestone. There are men as young as 19 years old. The heartbreaking lines will either leave you with pride filled heart or tear filled eyes. Most Cantonments have a war cemetery which have been maintained really well. The visitors mostly include family, friends & relatives of the fallen. Foreign men & women fighting for their country, who died for their country, & were buried in a foreign land with a folded flag received by their family. If this doesn’t motivate you to visit & pay your respects, I don’t know what will.
Nice place to visit. Graves of soldiers bravely died in 1939 war.
Beautiful and we'll maintained
A monument of international importance located in the khadki cantonment area of Pune is the War cemetery. The tombstones of more than 1600 soldiers from world war II are located here. About 660 tombstones belonging to martyrs of World War I we're shifted here from the Sewri war cemetery of Bombay due to lack of maintenance there. The memorials belong to soldiers from various religions, countries. An extremely well maintained place, with the names of each of the soldiers inscribed. It is open from 8 am to 7 pm. The garden is beautiful adding to the tranquility of the place.
