Teenagers thought it was boring... But still, seeing the care with which this facility is keep, and the variety of ethnicities of the fallen soldiers, as well as the gravestone inscirptions from the family... It can be a very moving experience.

This is a memorial and cometary for the 26,000 young men who gave their life fighting in WW2. The size of it will hurt your heart. It's beautifully maintained and well worth a visit. It is a very sad place though.

We stopped here on the way back into Yangon on our tour and it was a couple of days after Remembrance Day 11th November so there were lots of Poppies and flower tributes on the graves. A very moving and solemn place.

A place you should go when you are in Rangoon. To look back how bad the war is. Many young men died for their greedy leaders. They sent many young innocent men into the war when they are in the nice office commending. No war...More

We rented a van. It's about over an hour drive. I think the registry is being kept by the Commonwealth War Graves in London.
