Learn about the tragic World War II history of Tham Kra Sae Bridge. The bridge makes up a small part of the 415 km (228 mi) Burma Railway or "Death Railway," built with the forced labor of Allied prisoners of war in extreme conditions. Many of these POWs died during the construction, and the bridge serves as a testament to the horrors of those times, with trains still operating on the tracks. In addition to the bridge itself, there is a small Buddhist shrine inside a picturesque cave near the bridge.
