It really is little more than a shell, but renovations were taking place when we visited. Great look out & definitely worth the walk up, especially the old grave stones.

The place was small and narrow. There was a small market nearby and so unlike of a church... lots of trishaws but doesnt look safe to ride in... too pricey. The ride is RM20 a trip and in this kind of hot weather I wouldn't recommend to any one in their right mind.

I pictured that the interior would be like the ones in Europe. I was somewhat plain actually. But I like the shape of the building. the people who served the church were kind and willing to explain the history of the church. But I am happy to be on one of the trail sites of St. Francis.

This church tilts to one side due to the softer ground under half the building, ok it doesn't tilt like the world famous one but it sure does!

I gave it an average rating because overall there are certainly more beautiful churches around. The Church on top of St Paul's hill is certainly a must visit along side this church.
