Once you come out of the church and walk north you will first see Second Rohilla War Memorial. This memorial was constructed to commemorate the war between the Rohilla’s and the Nawab of Oudh. The war happened in a region that we now know as Rohilkhand which is in north-western Uttar Pradesh. Rohilla’s were a Pashtun tribe who had settled in this region and a conflict with the local Nawab led to the first war in 1773–1774 followed by the second in 1794.
The British were backing the Nawab and in the second conflict, the British under the command of General Sir Robert Abercromby defeated the Rohilla’s thus this memorial with twelve pillars were erected. This memorial had twelve columns with a round tomb on top.
