the heart of town, this is the final resting place of almost
7,000 POW's who lost their lives during the construction of
the "Death Railway".
Japanese Army, following their invasion of Thailand during
World War II, brought British, Dutch, Australian and American
prisoners to Thailand from Singapore.
Kai War Cemetery
Chong Kai Cemetery, on the banks of the River
Kwai, is smaller but more peaceful than the one in town
and is beautifully kept with all kinds of flowers and plants.
2,000 POW's are buried here at Chong Kai. The cemetery can
be reached by boats, available at the pier in front of the
town gate and also from the Bridge.
