Great place, pleasant place, will get memorial for many lost lives in WWII.
Beautiful memorial to those who lost their lives during WW2. Extremely well maintained grounds. Certainly worth a stop to remember the sacrifices people made.
If you travel to Bago, you will pass through it. It buried many young lives that sacrifice during war. But now this place is keep in nice mode, they all under respect and love.
We stopped on the way to Bago and the memorial site is very well maintained. To me it is a bit depressing with all these young men and their graves but i understand the importance of a site like this. If you are interested in WWII this is a great place to visit.
