Grambala Hill

Title

Grambala Hill

Description

This conical memorial, roughly 15 feet in height, surrounded by a circular paved area and risers forming a theatral area, is positioned at a hairpin turn in the road up to the Papingo villages. The stone-built truncated conical monument is topped with three crossed arrows and is inset with a bronze memorial plaque. The monument is set within a stone enclosure topped by a metal balustrade. The metal gate is flanked by marble plaques recording the names of the deceased. The plaque on the right is broken in four pieces, one of which is missing. The same names as recorded on the bronze plaque are listed on these. There are remains of memorial wreaths and shabbat candles on site.
