This temple is in a brilliant location overlooking Sandakan. It is in great condition and full of colour. Treat it with the reverence it deserves as it is one of the best temples I have seen.

Thank Bryan B

This is basically a huge Buddhist temple sitting on top of a hill overlooking the Sandakan Bay. If you are not a Buddhist you just go there to enjoy the beautiful views of the bay and its islands. Nice architecture.

We came here as part of a city tour. What a wonderful building, and inside, so splendid. Have been to a few Buddist temples on our far east trip, and this is one of the best. Very ornate, and majestic statues in the entrance . Lovely view over the city

Huge temple on a hill. There are 2 temples within the ground. Big Buddha statues lined the driveway to the entrance. The temple overlooks the sea. Cool and breezy.
