Visit Sandakan Memorial Park, a powerful historical site commemorating Allied prisoners of war. Built in the grounds of the former Sandakan camp, the memorial honors the lives of 2,345 POWs that died during the Sandakan and Ranau death marches, when the country was occupied by Japanese forces during World War II. A simple black obelisk marks the beginning of the route marched by the prisoners, and bears a moving inscription in dedication to their lives and service.
