A war memorial dedicated to the Garhwal Rifle Regiment, of the Indian Army, is one of the main attractions in Lansdowne. It was established on November 11, 1923, by Lord Rawlinson of Trent (then commander in chief, India). It is located at the Parade Ground in Lansdowne and was established to mark the heroics of the Garhwal regiment. Both the war memorial and the parade ground are closed to the public. On the day when the oath-taking ceremony of new recruits is held, the ground presents a very patriotic sight.


Nearby the memorial is a regimental museum called the Darwan Singh Museum that is also worth a visit. It is a treasure trove of information on India's pre-independence history. Tourists who are interested in the history of Indian Army would especially love this place.
