The Parish of St Michael and All Angels, Sandakan
(3.1/5 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.

It is one of the building miraculously remained in the city of Sandakan appearance of moderation in the stately stone church, destroyed during the war once left no stone unturned. Heard that it took years to complete and was minutes rugged?

  • Visited once many years ago. Went in, sat down quietly, soaked in the atmosphere and admired the interiors. Architecturally pleasing to the eye, the church, though small, is picturesque and beautiful....  more »
