  • This place is very impressive. I think anybody who comes near should stop by here. If you are just coming here for 1-2 hours or more to see this place, it does not meet your expectations ...
  • The memorial itself is no slouch either, but the location is incredibly beautiful. I would recommend planning some long walks around if you come here.
