Categories: Cemeteries, Monuments, Tourist Spots
Myanmar's largest cemetery, Taukkyan War Cemetery commemorates fallen Allied soldiers from the British Commonwealth. Opened in 1951, the cemetery contains graves of 6,374 victims who lost their lives in World War II; due to postwar unrest, around 27,000 buried bodies and names remain lost to archives. Isolated by jungle from roadside sites, the thoughtfully designed memorial provides insight into the war on Burmese soil. During your visit, carry extra water and sunglasses, as well as an umbrella or hat for common rain showers.

The field of honour is well maintained with all small bronze commemorative pictures with names. To my surprise and dismay is actually this cemetery used to picnic to play in the Sun to lie and so on. Some interest what all those soldiers have done is not there and the Myanmar Government does nothing about it.show original
war can only bring great harm for human, is not the solution for any problem. we should cherish peace and defend peace.
We stopped on the way to Bago and the memorial site is very well maintained. To me it is a bit depressing with all these young men and their graves but i understand the importance of a site like this. If you are interested in WWII this is a great place to visit.
My grandfathers grave is there unfortunately some how he was counted in unknown, planing to visit by 2017
The best view for photo shoots
Nice Place & Very Romatic Place :* :)
