Fifteen minutes is enough time. The location is pretty and the monument (with oddly non-Asian races on the sculptured figures) is of passing interest. Don't go out of your way to see this.

This is a lovely monument and memorial, in gorgeous grounds. Well thought out and designed for the soldiers. Don't miss it.

Cenotaph monument raised in memory of the fallen from the 1st world and subsequent wars. Located in beautiful grounds with good views of the city. The sculptures are very interesting and remind me of a famous photo from American Vietnam.

Worth visiting to spend 10 minutes to take photos and see the Monument, that is there to remember the fallen soldiers from WW2 and the Malayan Emergency. Across a busy main road from the Botanica Gardens. Not easy to access via public transport.

This monument is made of bronze and is in the memory of martyr of world war 2. This is situated in very peaceful park and you can have some quality time there.

The monument itself takes 5-10 min. The area around it is nice to walk and close to the botanical, bird, and butterfly park. So that would take half a day.
