Taukkyan War Cemetery, Yangon (Rangoon)

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.
