I regularly return to Yangon, and never fail to visit the Taughchan cemetry, to Lay my respects . It is most touching to see how young the deceased were , as young as 18 years of age. The cemetry is beautifully kept with manicured lawns.

Most cars and tours stop here on their way to Golden Rock. It's just outside of town of Rangoon. Very well maintained grounds give you a moment to contemplate the horrors of any war

When you visit here you will see that this is where local couples go to hide under their umbrellas for some alone time. You can get amazing phots here, it's a break from the bustle of the city and a lovely place to walk around.
