Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a place that is so sad to see. How many people lost their life in such a brutal way. Reminds us freedom is often very hard to achieve

This place is a memorial place for war soldiers. Few people goes to take photos and some go there for just an experience. If you don't have time, you can skip this place.

I visited some 20 years ago to see my fathers grave. He was killed in Burma November 23rd 1944. I stood by his grave and cried, for the waste, for the grief it caused Mum and for the fact i never met him and he never saw me. How any one can review as 4 have done and given it 1 for awful is beyond me. They probably never lost a relative inn the war so it means little to them. I have missed him more and more as i get old, never met but never forgotten. Love you Dad.

This is a spacious and very green cemetery that respectfully honours those Myanmar who died while serving their country.

A very emotional and awe inspiring place to visit. It really brings home the sacrifice made by 27,000 brave men from all corners of the Commonwealth. If you like your history this is a must see.

Peaceful and well kept. Need to stroll in and around to read memorials. There is a book to sign but you need a guide to show you where it’s kept

We travelled out to Taukkyan War Cemetery to pay our respects and must say were very privileged to visit. No Australians are buried there but the care taken in looking after the grounds is a joy to behold. Our guide was very apologetic as this is a place for families to go and have picnics etc. We quickly explained that seeing the families made us very happy and they should be proud to share this place with everyone.

I am interested in the history of Myanmar (Burma) because my mother's family (Burmese) had a terrible time when the Japanese invaded and the older male members were in the forces. I was amazed by this listing of names and regiments. The cemetary is a Commmonwealth War Graves Commission site and therefore well maintained. Good interpretation boards. An interesting place to stop and visit if you are in the area.

It is unimaginable to think 27,000 graves here. The place is well kept and the security keep a tight control on what is taken in and out. Well worth an hour to reflect
