The Stone Church is still standing tall on top of a hill within the local community village. Getting inside provides us with the quietness & calmness that we are searching for to rejuvenate our soul.

Unfortunately it was closed when we were here - but the sneak look through the windows gave the impression that it’s a nice church

Discovered this church through the Heritage Trail Map. Looks like an old Anglican Church. It was closed during my visit, but the premised was kept clean. Interesting piece of old architecture

This is something which you might thought to find only in Europe, but it is really in Sandakan. The building itself is wonderful to see from the outside

A traditional English style church dating from the time when this was British North Borneo. The outstanding feature was a set of three colourful and stunning stained-glass windows by Australian artist Philip Handel. These were installed in a period from 2005 to 2008 so are still quite brilliant.

One of the very few surviving pre-WWII buildings in Sandakan, this pretty stone church sits as a relic of colonial times. It was designed by BW Mountfort, a New Zealander, and built in 1893.

There is a RM10 entrance fee to the church. Didn't go inside as the church is small and from a look through the windows didn't have much appeal.

We thought we would visit the oldest building in sandakan and we're glad we did. It has an interesting history that was brought to life by the lovely lady ( from Pakistan who's name we did not catch) who opened the church for us and described the key features. Lovely stained glass windows donated by Aussies, etc.

We walked part of the Heritage Trail in reverse direction to get here but struggled to find the entrance as it's in the middle of a local school complex. It was funny to see all the school kids leaning over a balcony (presumably in the middle of class) asking where we from!

The Parish of St. Michael is probably the oldest structure remain on the island. Since the Japanese occupation and followed by the allies bombing, most of the buildings in North British Borneo were completely destroyed. Therefore this simple parish built in 1888 is a treasure for the community. The exterior and interior of the parish are well preserved.
