War Martyrs Monument

War Martyrs Monument information

Lonely Planet review

On the eastern edge of town off Hwy 30, the War Memorial (Dai Liet Si) is Cao Lanh’s most prominent landmark, a Socialist Realist–style sculpture featuring a large white concrete statue of a decorated soldier holding flowers in front of a stylised star. The rear of the statue is illustrated with storks, a symbol of the Mekong.

Within the grounds are the graves of 3112 VC who died fighting in the American War.
