The old St Anne’s Church in Bukit Mertajam February 20, 2007Posted by asianpixmen in Culture, Malaysia, People, Places.
About 161 years ago (1846), a small chapel was built next the Bukit Mertajam hill. Its first priest, a Frenchman, was Father Adolphe Couellan.
The roots of the original St Anne Church were planted at Batu Kawan. Then, it shifted to Permatang Tinggi, and later to Machang Bubok. Finally, it arrived at Bukit Mertajam.
