Nice memorial, well maintained.Nothing much to see actually, just to pay respect to the " fallen heroes " of the past. Quite, peaceful environment. There are some stalls selling food n drinks should you need to rest.

Beautifully landscaped memorial garden where 3906 war heroes who died in battle or captivity in Borneo during WWII are laid to rest. Every November, a commemoration would be held to honor the lives of these valiant men who fought during the war.

Without going into too much detail, This was the only place I found out to be very well maintained on the island. It was across from the hospital. There is a lot of history here and it was peaceful. Apart from the cars driving on the main road. It is not that far from the city and you can drive... More
