Was here to just to tell people that I've been with photos. I not into history so nothing really special. It's nearby the Zoo, so just drop by as its a short distance. If lazy, just look through the photos... Should have taken panoramic view. The photos is basically like that. Enjoy.

This meticulously maintained cemetery marks the resting place of Commonwealth soldiers & airmen who died in the WW2 campaign to defend Malaya. Men from Britain, Australia, India, Nepal, Malaya and elsewhere, many of whom are unidentified, many with moving tributes from their families inscribed on the headstones. Bear in mind this is the only dedicated site within Malaysia where remains... More

We stopped by for 15 minutes just to walk around. It is a well-maintained cemetery, quiet and neatly organised.

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
