Well done to all the people who looked after this cemetery, the gardens were kept so well and in all a place to remember all the heroes.

It’s kept so nice and clean and the area outside is busy and chaotic, open the gate and it’s so peaceful

Very close to Yangon by bus or 4000 in taxi , there is a visitors book in the gate house on the right as you enter

We came on a Sunday to pay out respects

Quite a moving experience

I regularly return to Yangon, and never fail to visit the Taughchan cemetry, to Lay my respects . It is most touching to see how young the deceased were , as young as 18 years of age.
The cemetry is beautifully kept with manicured lawns.

Most cars and tours stop here on their way to Golden Rock. It's just outside of town of Rangoon. Very well maintained grounds give you a moment to contemplate the horrors of any war

When you visit here you will see that this is where local couples go to hide under their umbrellas for some alone time. You can get amazing phots here, it's a break from the bustle of the city and a lovely place to walk around.

This is 20-30 minutes north of the airport, so you can see it, say, on your way to the airport or on a long layover It is a huge peaceful cemetary that is very well maintained. Unfortunately there are no explanatory panels or anything like that, but you can piece together the story from the tombstones.

There are several war cemeteries in Yangon, the Rangoon War Cemetery is the Commonwealth War Cemetery and just a few kms from city centre. The Taukkyan War Cemetery is 25kms out of the centre of the city (the photo on TA is from Taukkyan).
A very quiet, secluded and well-maintained site, away from all the dust and hustle and bustle of the traffic. Set out in sections for the various Commonwealth regiments; British, Indian, African, etc. Worth a visit if you are interested in this

Very well maintained cemetery to remember those who fought in WWII in Burma. Those represented include; Burmese, British, Welsh, Nigerian, West African, and Indian forces, as well as those representing various religions. Worth a trip!

The Rangoon War Cemetery was the first burial ground set up after the liberation of Rangoon from the Japanese occupation in May 1945. At present, there are over 1,400 British, Australian, Gurkha, and Burmese prisoners of war being buried or commemorated in the cemetery. The cemetery is very neat and clean and well maintained. It’s a cool amazing peaceful place to visit in Yangon to remember and respect, who sacrificed their life to liberate the country during WWII.
