About an hour or so’s drive from central Rangoon, this cemetery appears suddenly, and is seemingly in the middle of nowhere, surrounded only by a few small shops and a tiny village. It feels like a tiny bit of Britain that has been transported thousands of miles away to Myanmar.
The beautifully maintained cemetery holds the remains of Allied soldiers who died during World War I and World War II. It contains 6,374 graves from World War II alone, though only 5,576 are identified.
