Unveiling of the Chattri Memorial, 1 February 1921

The Chattri memorial is dedicated to the Indian soldiers who died while being treated in Brighton during the First World War.

The monument stands high on the Downs in Patcham, on the spot where 53 Hindus and Sikhs who died in Brighton’s hospitals (including the Royal Pavilion) were cremated.

The Chattri was unveiled by the Prince of Wales on 1 February 1921. An annual ceremony still takes place at the memorial every June.
