What we say: 3.5 stars

This solemn memorial commemorates Allied soldiers who lost their lives in Malaysian Borneo during World War II, specifically British and Australian POW who were forced on death marches through the mountainous jungle.

It's worth taking some time to stroll through the four gardens, the Australian garden, English rose garden, Borneo garden and contemplation garden with a reflecting pool, and see the plaques inscribed with the names of the dead.

The memorial does not receive any government funding, and your 10 ringgit admission fee (1 ringgit for children under 12) is used for maintenance.
