“Lovely Church”

Reviewed 1 June 2014

The church itself is small and very beautiful. you can wander by yourself and take in the emotions. While we were there a wedding rehearsal was in progress but they were more than happy for us to be there and take our photos.

It's one of the oldest church in Sandakan. It is a beautiful church with stain glass window around 4 corners inside the church.

This is one of three buildings to survive the bombings of WW2. Only a small section at the back of the church was bombed but it has been restored to its original beauty. A few pews are as old as the church whilst the new ones are crafted similarly to the originals. Ask the guide to point out the three original pews. The large stained glass panels are a sight to behold. Church services are still conducted regularly today. Pay RM5 per adult to enter and experience the beauty of 19th century architecture.

Surviving the bombings of WW2, this structure is one of the oldest standing churches around in the whole of Malaysia. RM 5 per entry. Both magnificent exterior decor and interior furnishings. Witness one of the oldest stained glass paintings inside the church donated in memory of the lives lost during WW2. Three of the church pews are perhaps more than a hundred year's old and is made of some real hardcore wood that needs more than 10 people to move it. We were fortunate enough to have a guided tour by the person in charge.

Part and parcel of the heritage trail.

There's not much can do in Sandakan, we take a trip to the St. Michael Church after we went to English Tea House.
This is one of the oldest building in Sandakan, said started building in 1839 and took over 30 years to finish. The church was closed when we arrived, our friends asked the staff to open for us to visit.
This is a small church with beautiful decorated windows. It's chill inside. It's worth to take a quick look.
