A somber reminder of World War I's aftermath, the Menin Gate stands at the brink of the Kasteelgracht. It was built to honor the missing soldiers who lost their lives in the Ypres Salient battle of World War I. The memorial was opened on 24th July 1927 and is dedicated to those soldiers whose remains were never recovered or identified. The structure consists of a triumphal archway and contains the Hall of Memory, which has the names of more than 54,000 Salient soldiers carved on stone panels. The Menin Gate was built by Reginald Blomfield by order of the British Government, an ally of Belgium during the war.
