On the way to Bago, a recommended stop is the military cemetery at Taukkyan, an impeccably maintained and poignant memorial to the tens of thousands of servicemen from the British Commonwealth who died fighting the Japanese during World War II.
A total of 6,374 servicemen are buried here. Marked with polished headstones and set amid manicured lawns, their graves stand alongside memorials to the 27,000 unnamed troops from India and Africa who perished in the same battles. The entire complex is maintained in pristine condition by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
