A memorial remembrance garden situated in and with commanding views of the South Downs Country Park. The Chattri is a memorial within the gardens built to honour the Indian dead of World War I. It stands on the Downs near Patcham at the place where Hindu and Sikh soldiers who died in Brighton war hospitals during 1914-1915 were cremated. It was unveiled by HRH The Prince of Wales on 21 February 1921.

Immediately to the south of the memorial is Chattri Down Site of Nature Conservation Importance, most of which is open access land. Chattri Down supports a species-rich chalk grassland habitat and is in the South Downs National Park.
