The war memorial is situated at Ghoom - Batasia loop. It's visible when you enter or depart from Darjeeling. The toy train from Darjeeling stops here at the loop for nearly half an hour. You can also visit by road. Here you will find the Gorkha Dresses for your personalised photo session.

The War Memorial stands as a reminiscence of the Gurkha martyrs of Darjeeling, who sacrificed their lives for their country in the wars and operations that have taken place since independence. In 1976, Manish Gupta, the then Deputy Commissioner of Darjeeling, took the initiative to construct a War Memorial, to pay homage to the 76 brave sons of Darjeeling who gave the supreme sacrifice of their life, for the cause of their nation.

Address: Ghoom Batasia Loop, Darjeeling.
