This majestic temple built in 1987 stands on a hilltop overlooking the sea. The entrance is being greeted with Lord Buddha statues and each one is tilted as the road is uphill. A must see place. Decorations are on the way for Chinese New Year.

On top of high hill got the whole of Sandakan. Peaceful and clean air. Good place for meditation. The temple closed at4.30pm, so be early should anyone want the inner view of the temple.

We are not of any particular religious belief, however there is a tranquility here & an underlying peace. Fantastic views & worth a look.

Must be the highest point in Sandakan. Simply beautiful temple itself with a breathtaking view of the town and sea. A must drop by if you are here in Sandakan. Even the entrance to the temple is a grand one, uphill!
