Not really inviting, since parking space is missing. So it is a drive-through kind of thing. I would have liked to see more of it. The uniformity of the gravestones gives it a bit of a strange impression, but maybe that is part of the war/army perspective. When I saw it during a first drive-through to another place, I thought...

It lies between Maxwell Hill and Taiping Lake Garden. Surrounded by greens. Very well kept and clean. Feels very peaceful without eerie feelings like some cemeteries. Can walk to the coronation pool that is located at the foot of the hill for a cool dip or for those who are fit take a walk up the hill.

Just outside Taiping carved out of the jungle lies this war cemetery. It is two parts, on one side of the road are the Muslim graves whilst non-Muslim occupy the other side. It is a reminder that many from all religions fought together in steamy jungle for a common cause. Take a moment to stop and contemplate whilst you listen... More

like most Christian war cemeteries, this one too is so well kept, clean, neat and tidy. An opportunity to say thanks to the fallen ones who defended this land for us to enjoy.

I've visited it recently and found the place to be exquisitely well maintained, the "carpet" grass is very beautifully well maintained and so does the surroundings. Well done to the authority for keeping up this attraction place to be beautifully maintained.

Like most Commonwealth Cemeteries, it is beautifully laid out, gardened and maintained. The location is peaceful, and is a great place to spend a thoughtful half-hour reading the headstones and remembering history. Car parking outside is very limited, but this is only a 300m walk from the car park by the Open Air Swimming Pool and the Station where you... More

Was surprised how small this cemetery is, but it is very neat and well maintained. There are 2 plots on either side of the road.

Just stop by on the way to Maxwell Hill (Bukit Larut). The war cemetery is very well maintained and looked after.

The War Cemtery is where WWII fallen British and other members of her majesty's armed services have been laid to rest. The plots are well organized, the grass well-kept and overall its a tranquil spot.
