Attraction details
Owner description: Taiping War Cemetery was created by the Army after the defeat of Japan for the reception of graves brought from the battlefields, from numerous temporary burial grounds, and from village and other civil cemeteries where permanent maintenance would not be possible. There are separate entrances to the two parts, the plots of Christian graves lying on the south-eastern side of the road and the Muslim and Gurkha graves on the opposite side. In the Muslim and Gurkha section the Stone of Remembrance stands in front of a high bank which forms the north-western boundary. The two small shelters in the cemetery have been constructed of local stone, and a low stone wall flanks the road on each side.

Adjacent to the Lake Gardens is the War cemetery. A well looked after cemetery is a sad reminder of how useless was is. Walking thru it and reading the names of many may young British soldiers made me wonder how we manage to lead young people to believe in giving up their lives in what is times again, a fruitless activity- war. The maintenance of this cemetery is funded by the Brits, hence it is immaculate, so it is worth a walk around. It is only a small, so you dont need much time, half an hour is more than sufficient.

When you see headstones from 1942 remembering a solider from East Surrey where I used to live its puts your own little life in perspective.The graves are well maintained and if you pass you should spare a moment to stop. After all the reason you have the freedom and choice to do was down these soldiers.

Place was very very well maintained , and if anyone happens to pass by, it is definitely worth stopping by and have a look see. Nothing much to see here in fact, but if anyone was as clueless as me when I passed that place, then why not ?
