Kranji War Memorial

Kranji War memorial is a memorial and cemetery in Singapore, which honors men and women who died in the line of duty in World War II. The men and women were from Britain, Australia, India, Canada, Sri Lanka, Malaya, Netherlands and New Zealand. There are about 4500 gravestones lined up in cemetery.

My visit to the memorial was an emotional visit. The youngest age of a man who had died for his country was 19 years old. The cemetery was a reminder of the bravery of these men and women who fought and gave their life for what they believed and their country.

Visitor Information:

The cemetery is open everyday from 7 AM to 6:30 PM.
