Hi Friends,

Puu Jih Shih Buddhist Temple is a Buddhist temple in Sandakan, Sabah. It is located on a hill about 4 km to the west of Sandakan town centre. From here, there’s a panoramic vista of Sandakan Bay below compared with the other Chinese and Buddhist temples in Sandakan, Puu Jih Shih is pretty new, having come into the picture only in 1987 at a cost of RM5 million.

Puu Jih Shih is extravagant, and is likely built to awe. It is built in a grand scale, with giant undulating dragons, golden Buddha statues and more.
