The War memorial is located in a huge and absolutely stunning setting. The Shrine is on the top of a hill and that makes it stand out from quite far and the view from the top is just amazing.

Light Falling on the word Love

Greater Love Hath No Man

The most amazing part of this shrine is the event that occurs on Rememberance Day Novemember 11th every Year. At 11 AM the rays of the sun passes through the small gap in the ceiling and fall right on the word Love on the memorial Stone.
