A local restaurant owner suggested strongly that we seem out the war cemetery. We are glad we did. It is a simple and moving tribute to the fallen from the Malayan, Indian and British/Australian forces who served in WW2.

These two cemeteries are well maintained. There is some information provided on the signs just outside. Worth a look on your way up Bukit Larut

It was a very nostalgic visit to the war cemetery to look at the names of all the fallen heroes who gave their lives in the defense of our country. A visit recommended for the younger generation as it will be a walk down history.

Easy to find as it is on the way to Bukit Larut. Not enough promotion or info available. Lack of parking is also a hindrance.

The casualties of wasteful conflict are buried in this beautifully kept cemetery just outside Taiping. Soldiers and airmen of several nationalities and religions are buried here.

A well tended War Cemetery that is worth a look around. The graves relate to Allied troops, killed during the Second World War, mostly in the Malayan campaign. A high proportion of the graves relate to unidentified men, which makes it more poignant.

And remember the dead heroes buried here in Taping many miles from their original homes. A lovely location despite the fact that a road cuts through the middle of the cemetery. All well laid out and very well kept - to the exact standards of...More
