“Beautifully Maintained”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

The markers and lawns were very well maintained. We arrive when the cemetery was supposedly closed but the caretaker opened the gates for us.

“Golden Rock Tour with Yangon and Bago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This war cemetry is on the highway between yangon and Golden rock. Worth a stop. it has been built as a memory of the over 27,000 soldiers ( irrespective of which side they fought). Well maintained garden.

The whole feeling here was one of peace and respect. The area was beautifully clean, tidy and well laid out with flowering shrubs and well watered and tended lawns.

“it depends on how you react to this type of thing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

it is haunting to see all these names of different nationalities. It can be spoilt by tourists who seem to think it is all a joke and are just having their pictures taken every where

“What a terrible War!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

This is a beautiful, well maintained site - calm, peaceful, well laid out and focused us on just how many lives from so many nations were so sadly lost.
