St Anne’s Church Bukit Mertajam had a face lift about 1-2 years ago.. The existing church was given a new coat of paint and a souvenir shop as well as a security office were built. One of the interesting addition were the 15 life sized statues that tell the story of Jesus when he was crucified. The statues cost RM600,000 and are really life sized. The process of looking for all the statues was quite fun, it felt like a treasure hunt.

There you have it, all 15 life sized statues featured in St Anne’s church. It was a really nice visit after so long (it’s been around 4-5 years since I last went) Quite happy also knowing that Bukit Mertajam has a new landmark now :)
