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.

War cemetery can be reached on foot or car. Do not expect any buses to go up there. Taxi's can be quite pricy. If you like to walk, walk by the lake garden until up the cemetery. You should count 1h30 walking to get there and it's definitely worth it. Not just the cemetery is well maintained but you'll enjoy... More
