  • This is a british monument in commemoration of their fallen soldiers in the Helles War. Hopefully we have all learnt our lessons and in respect to the innocent souls of fallen soldiers of this and their barbarious wars being fought all over the globe, we would all make the world a better place.
  • A very moving place everyone should visit
  • We will remember them. Big car park. Great views from here. There is a Turkish emplacement to walk round on the other side of the road.
  • An experience not to forget
  • A very solemn yet not crowdy place. If you are in the neighborhood, it is worth it to go there. The obelisk can be recognized from far away
