WWII Cemetery in Kanchaburi

I visited there with friends during February this year, and the Cemetery was the last spot we stopped by. It is opposite the Railway Station, about 1 kilometre from town, it contains the remains of 6,982 war prisoners who lost their lives during the construction of the "Death Railway". The staff is taking very good care of places, it is all clean with nice flower decoration in which showing full respect to all the dead.

We were allowed to walk around and showing our respect, I've read some of name panel and feel very shocked that some were very young at their age. War is really cruel!

No war can bring peace.
