See the twin spires of St. Francis Xavier Church, a Neo-Gothic church built in honor of a prominent 16th-century missionary. Try to spot the building's slight lean to the left and enter the airy interior to admire the stained glass windows. Step into the churchyard to discover a statue of St. Francis Xavier and his Japanese disciple Yajiro.

  • 建筑挺有特色,和之前看到的其他天主教教堂有些不一样,建筑是为了纪念早年到东亚东南亚传教的圣方济,里面还存有一些圣物。现在从外面看还是感觉一直有维护,刷的漆很新,有时间还是可以进去参观下的。 
  • Next landmark Church of St. Francis Xavier. This church is interesting because the history of the conquest of Malaysia, first at this place was the Portuguese Chapel, and from 1856 on her site became French. Most importantly, admission is free! Inside as beautiful as inside. And the main thing is cool! Located in the historic area of the city on the street Jalan Laksamana, by pass. Snow-white and rose turns out to be combined.

  • One of the oldest catholic churches in town. This place is named after their patron saint St Francis Xavier. The church has 2 towers, both apparently holds 2 large brass bells, which cannot be seen from the outside. When you enter the church, you can see some adornment of stained glass. And if you notice properly the church grounds is shaped into a cross. There is a catholic gift store just in front of the church. It's a good place to visit.
  • A nice and easily noticeable Catholic Church.
