This is my written guide for Manila-American Cemetery and Memorial.

Despite of the booming, fast-rising and busy Bonifacio Global City now, I found peace and a serene place in Taguig.


Manila-American Cemetery and Memorial is owned and maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission of the USA.

Gate's details

The Manila American Cemetery and Memorial in the Philippines occupies 152 acres on a prominent plateau, visible at a distance from the east, south and west.


It contains the largest number of graves of our military dead of World War II, a total of 17,201, most of whom lost their lives in operations in New Guinea and the Philippines.

Headstones at Manila-American Cemetery and Memorial

The headstones are aligned in 11 plots forming a generally circular pattern, set among masses of a wide variety of tropical trees and shrubbery.

The chapel, a white masonry building enriched with sculpture and mosaic, stands near the center of the cemetery.

The exterior of the chapel.

Then, inside the chapel is this tall mosaic of Virgin Mary.

Inside Manila-American Cemetery and Memorial's chapel

In front of it on a wide terrace are two large hemicycles.

Large hemicycles

Twenty-five mosaic maps recall the achievements of the American armed forces in the Pacific, China, India and Burma.

Mosaic maps tell the movements of the armed forces during WWII

It's just me. Nvm.

You can take IG-worthy photos, too!

On rectangular Trani limestone piers within the hemicycles, are inscribed the Tablets of the Missing containing 36,285 names.


Rosettes mark the names of those since recovered and identified.

One of the seals carved on the floor

Carved in the floors are the seals of the American states and its territories.



Afternoon view from Manila-American Cemetery and Memorial

From the memorial and other points within the cemetery there are impressive views over the lowlands to Laguna de Bay and towards the distant mountains.

BGC buildings as seen from Manila-American Cemetery and Memorial

However, due to uprising economy of Taguig City, buildings and skyscrapers are already standing and surrounding the place.

The view of structures in Bonifacio Global City. So it was really a perfect serene experience that day.



All photos taken via 8mp rear camera of my mobile phone, Samsung Galaxy Grand. I guess, the afternoon sunlight was perfect to take photos.
