Its emotional yet amazing at the same time. Imagine 3,908 soldiers of World War II sacrifice their lives, so that we can live peacefully today.

A finest memorial for over 2000 commonwealth soldiers who laid down lives in the War. Geometrically laid tombstones of many unknown soldiers. The spic and span park offers picturesque photos.

Not too many places for the tourist. If you do have time, spend some moments to reflect on the fallen heroes. The immaculate green lawn makes picturesque photos.

It is rather harrowing to see all the plaques - thousands of them and realise that all of these men died as POW's under appalling conditions.
