  • 這是一個保持良好的戰爭公墓。這裡有來自英國,澳大利亞,加拿大,斯里蘭卡,印度,馬來亞,荷蘭和新西蘭的2萬多名士兵。它們是為新加坡和馬來亞抗擊侵略的日本軍隊而犧牲。然而,公墓有4,458盟軍軍人的墳墓,其中850沒有標記。這地方非常平靜和安詳,是和平的象徵。但一個難忘的想法,就是因為這麼多盟軍部隊為新加坡犧牲,我們才有自由。另一方面,在墓地沒有一個中文名字。事實上,到20世紀70年代末期,新加坡還受...  more »
  • We went on a half day tour which included other places so only had about 45 minutes here. They have so much interesting stuff you could spend a day there. We would love to go back with more time to go...  more »
  • This was a beautifully kept war cemetery - we did not realise how big it was and there were a lot of graves from India and Australia as well as British.

  • How to get there: From Kranji mrt bus stop take either of these buses: 160, 170, 178, 960, 961 or 961c. Alight at the 2nd stop, after coming out of the bus, from you stance, walk left all the way untill you see a small road. Follow the path of the road until you see a building, the cemetery is just right ahead.
  • I had some difficulty finding it. The MRT station at Kranji no longer has a map and the lady in the office gave me verbal directions which were wrong. I asked a taxi driver on the other rank, but he didn't know where it was either. So, if you come out of the Kranji Station, where the bus stops are, turn left, keeping the Singapore Turf Club and the MRT elevated line on your left. Keep going until you get to a crossroads intersection controlled by traffic lights. Cross over (turning neither left or right) and take the next left up a small road. Between the inersection you have crossed and the small road, there is currently a building site. Walk up the road and the cemetery is ahead of you.
  • Solemn place of historical importance. A reminder of what happened in the past and what shouldn't happen in the future.
  • Beautiful setting for war cemetery - memorial to 240,000 war dead, many of whom were never found and therefore do not have graves. The memorial does not differentiate between ranks, races or religions.
  • It's surprising its not been given the importance it deserves..beautiful memorial..really touched with Singapore govts dedication in keeping alive the names of Indian and other Commonwealth soldeirs sacrifice..great job Singapore!
