3.8/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web
Visit The Parish of St Michael and All Angels, an Anglican place of worship and the oldest stone church in Sabah. Founded by clergyman William Henry Elton, the church took over 30 years to build, finally being completed in 1925. The church managed to come out of World War II relatively unscathed, unlike many of the buildings in the surrounding area. As such, its well-maintained granite brickwork is a rare sight in the area, while its impressive stained glass windows—a donation from Australia to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the end of the war—also stand as an historical testament and a tribute to the people of the town.

  • 世界上基督教堂千千万万,它作为一个教堂也不例外,这一点没有区别,建成是19世纪,大马婆罗洲大型石头建筑不多,它是其中之一!而且是动用了成百上千的监狱犯人,费尽千辛万苦才拉来的修建教堂的石头 
  • The oldest building in Sandakan built in 1888 and that was spared from the bombings of 1945 or any city was shaved... Pretty small churches with lovely stained... entrance fee which is a shame for u e church so that the Buddhist temple is free...
