Taukkyan War Cemetery, Yangon Reviews

  • Good place for historical and showing honour. But the security old man are not good in relation. Always showing unpleasant manners and badly angry to visitors. And the opening hours is need to be modified.

  • Memorial remembering the brave soldiers sacrificing their lives in war. It is very painful to see many soldiers died at young age of 18 to 21 so far away from their homes. Must visit while in Yangon to pay respect to those brave soldiers. It was emotional moment to see a soldier name Laxuman Bansode age 27 years of village Zanka in District Wardha(my native place) laid down his life on 2nd April 1945. He is son of Shri Ganpat Khadi and Husband of Anjanibai. What pain the family has gone thru those day. Special personal tributes to this brave soldier and his family members.

  • Contemplative stop on the way from Yangon to Bago. Very well maintained. Holds graves for soldiers from many Allied Nations.
