  • It is one of the best Sandakan landmark. A peaceful and beautiful temple. A nice view to Sandakan city. They serve free vegetarian lunch first and fifteen day of every lunar month.
  • A beautiful holy place with a great view of Sandakan. A very welcoming place for other religion's devotees as well to visit. So let all of us no matter races or religion to respect holy places wherever we go
