Taiping War Cemetery was created by the Army after the defeat of Japan for the reception of graves brought from the battlefields, from numerous temporary burial grounds, and from village and other civil cemeteries where permanent maintenance would not be possible. There are separate entrances to the two parts, the plots of Christian graves lying on the south-eastern side of the road and the Muslim and Gurkha graves on the opposite side. In the Muslim and Gurkha section the Stone of Remembrance stands in front of a high bank which forms the north-western boundary. The two small shelters in the cemetery have been constructed of local stone, and a low stone wall flanks the road on each side.

Set amongst lush greenery with rolling hills as a backdrop, this is a place to pay respect to fallen Allied soldiers. Not a tourist attraction. The air of calm that used to engulf this beautiful cemetery has of late been crassly disturbed by new hotel...More
