What a beautiful and well-kept location in the heart of Khartoum. Clean, green, manicured, and most of all profoundly moving and informative as regards the significant human cost of war in Sudan as paid for by Commonwealth and Colonial forces. No cost to enter, open...More

This is a very well maintained memorial to those who paid the ultimate price. For anyone interested in history this is an essential place to visit in Khartoum. Very moving to read the human stories told on the gravestones.

This is a very well maintained and cared for commonwealth soldier memorial and credit should be given for its guardianship. Although the service people are not actually buried in the memorial grounds, the fact there is a point of remembrance for them is worthy.

It was a beautiful environment. Itvhas a clear look and green at the same time. I loved it the first time I saw it. I am willing to arrange another moment to revist it again. It is so lovable.

It is supposed to be open Thursday to Saturday 9:00 - 14:30, but it was closed this Saturday morning. The Common Wealth site is a fenced space in a Roman Catholic cemetery, that perhaps is more interesting, though not as well maintained. Here the peacemakers...More

This attraction appears to be a beautifully kept cemetery. There are headstones and memorials all well kept and tended to. But no one is truly buried here. The soldiers are buried elsewhere or were never found. Go to honor the dead...even though they are not...More

I'm not sure that the graves are actually occupied, but it's a very nice memorial. It's well kept. Easily viewable from outside if the gate is locked
