When we went place was under construction. But we can imagine how it would become. It will be good for picnic and romantic spot on top of a cliff.

Though some part of the memorial is still under construction, a good visiting place. The evening visit will be good for sunset also. spare 2 to 3 hours as the location is also good for photography.

This is the best place to catch the sunset when in Diu. Nice breezy point with soothing roaring waves on a small cliff with an 5 min climb. A memorial to the fighter indian navy ship INS Khukri, hence the name of the point. It has a miniature model of the fighter vessel. Beautiful place, amongst the most scen8c places... More

I head read about the I.N.S. Khukery and its sad demise during the Indo-Pak war of 1971. During a submarine hunt, it was taken down by an enemy torpedo. It still rests near Diu coast and discussions regarding if it should be brought out of water have been going on ever since. The memorial is next to the Jallandhar Beach.... More
