War Martyrs Monument

Mekong Delta

On the eastern edge of town off Hwy 30, the War Memorial 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.
