Jakarta War Cemetery, Jakarta Overview

Lined with lush green trees and well-maintained gardens, the Jakarta War Cemetery is the resting place for soldiers lost their lives fighting for Indonesia against the Japanese during their World War II. Tourists visit this place to pay their respects to the brave soldiers. There is a separate resting place nearby for soldiers from British India, who died preserving the British empire.

Some 1200 graves have been marked, and these include soldiers from all three arms of the military. The cemetery also contains the Commonwealth graves instituted by the Dutch and the British colonial powers to recognize the sacrifices made by the soldiers spanning across both the Dutch and British empires. The Dutch section also houses a small chapel for visitors that want a place for quiet reflection. Harrowing tales of the war are also inscribed on the walls to remind people about the horrors of war.
