This is the main Prisoner of War cemetery in Thailand. It is associated with the victims of the Burma Railway. There are close to 7000 former POWs buried here. The cemetery is very well maintained. You will observe as you walk among the tombstones that most of the dead soldiers were very young, mostly in their early 20’s. There are two graves that are full of ashes of about 300 soldiers. The experience is quite harrowing. The tranquil ambience helps you to reflect on the wrongs that were done.
