Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre – Orang Utan
The centre attracts tourists and researchers alike, giving them the opportunity
To watch the orang utanup close in their natural habitat. A broad walk which leads to a viewing gallery and feeding platform where the apes are fed milk and bananas twice a day at 10am and 3 pm by rangers. Feeding time also attracts long-tailed macaques to the Area.
Pu Ji Shiih Temple
Undoubtedly the most impressive house of worship in Sandakan, the Pu Ji Shiih Temple occupies a superb hilltop location about 4 km out of town. (To get there, follow Jalan Leila to the roundabout which indicates right turn to "Kuil Pu Chi"; the winding road leads up the hill and eventually reaches the large car park.) The location alone-with a magnificent view down over the temple's landscaped gardens to Sandakan Bay would make it worth a visit, but the construction and decoration of the temple's interior are equally breath-taking.
Opened in 1987 after three years of construction and at a cost of around RM3 million, the temple has three massive gilded teak statues of Buddha, as well as giant standing lanterns filled with hundreds of tiny lamps decorating each side of the main altar. Thirty-four brilliant ornate pillars, writhing with painted dragons, support the roof of the vast, airy temple. With its flickering lamps, vivid colours, the movement of worshippers and the view from the entrance, the Pu Ji Shiih Temple should not be missed.
