"INS Khukri Memorial is a heart touching place" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Today
After visiting Gangeshwar temple we went to INS Khukri Memorial. It is a story of a alleviated ship, which sank during the INDO-PAK war in the year 1971. A memorial has been built for the officers and sailors of INS Khukri who lost their lives on that condemned day. The memorial consists of a wonderful model, encased in a glass case. It is a scenic beauty place also to spend an evening at sea shore and observing sunset beauty from there.

"Sunset Point beach"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Sunset point beach, a small beach, beyond Chakratirth, is a nice small place. It has a headland, topped by INS KHUKRI memorial.
INS KHUKRI, was a frigate of the Indian navy. It was sunk 40km off the Diu coast, during Indo pak war of 1971. If we remember, the captain of the ship, the commanding officer chose to go down with the ship along with 18 officers and 176 sailors. Nation will always remember their sacrifice.

"Pay your tribute to INS Khukri"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Apr 1, 2016
After visiting Diu fort, museum and church my auto driver drove towards INS khukri memorial. The sea side beaches, roads and sitting areas were perfect for evening time spend, sunset view, sea beauty, picnic and romantic date. We passed via Jalandhar beach and reached at INS Khukri memorial. The weapon was used during the Indo-pak war 1962. Our martyrs paid there lives to nation in this INS Khukri. Seaside open auditorium is perfect for any event. Be calm and feel proud for those martyrs and their bravery.

"Pride of Indian Navy History"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 30, 2015
INS Khukri Memorial is probably the best place to visit in Diu during the evening. A serene beach nearby and the beautiful sunset are all that it takes to create the perfect picture in your memory. This place is a combination of a naval ship memorial and an open-air theater. The memorial is dedicated to soldiers aboard the war ship INS Khukri which was lost during the 1971 Pakistan War.
