Project 365 Day 16 Battles

Every city has its share of stories to tell... Chennai too has been through its share of wars, and battles.. The one monument that i have been curious about is the War Memorial near Fort St George... I haven't spent too much time exploring this monument, and in fact am yet to make my 1st visit to Fort St George....  But i know i shall Soon...


I found this picture on my hard drive... I had clicked it using the Canon [film] camera that was a hand down from my uncle... Well, i wasn't really surprised to see the picture was of a good quality, and decided to get it digitized [convert hard copy of photo to a digital version] ... 


Situated on the Marina beach road in the area which housed the coastal belfry and was formerly called Cupids bow, the Victory War Memorial honours those who have laid down their lives for their country in the World Wars. It was constructed to commemorate the victory of the allied armies during World War I (1914-1918) and later became the victory war memorial for the World War II (1939-1945) in the memory of those from Chennai presidency who lost their lives serving the nation.
