Decided to visit Taukkyan War Cemetery with my friend Smith on 04/07/16, the memorial graves & surrounding garden is extremely well maintained & a reminder of the past with so many young soldiers having lost their lives during WW2 & thousands of soldiers having their names on the stone walls and a terrible loss of so many young men.

Some distance from the middle of town so allow 1h by cab. The grounds are well kept and the number of visitors to the site low. A haunting reminder of hard times.

This is really well kept and was a thought provoking place to visit. I did find the young people taking selfies rather distasteful though

Well maintained Commonwealth War Graves site from WW2 Burma conflicts. Mainly British. Sobering reminder of the human loss of War.

I came here just for a quick visit, this garden/cemetery is so well looked after, not a single weed and not a piece of dirt out of place! So beautiful to walk through, the flowers are very interesting!!
