This is a must see if you’re in Mawlamyine. It’s only about an hour’s drive south. The war memorial is beautifully laid out with stones and plaques with names of over 3000 fallen soldiers during the period 1939-1945. Despite the horror of war, this Garden...More

A Worthwhile visit to honour all our men who died for their countries at war at the hands of the Japanese on the Thai-Burma railway. Very sad seeing those so young and now knowing how they suffered. This is a beautifully kept memorial.

This was our first stop on the trip from Bangkok to the bridge. Very sobering, a lovely cared for memory to those who lost their lives. The grounds are manicured and are an endless show of respect to those to did not return from here.
