All Saints’ Taiping Heritage Church

All Saints’ Taiping Heritage Church is the first English Church in the Federated Malay States. It was built in 1887 and belongs to the Anglican Diocese of West Malaysia. After more than a hundred years, the church still retains its original form and was awarded a National Heritage Site by the Malaysian Government.

The church was constructed almost entirely of timber from meranti trees. It was designed by Australian architect D. Lefroy with Gothic architectural design in mind and built on a site donated by W.V. Drummond, a planter from Shanghai. The building has a louvered tower with four tubular bells and the stained glass window. There is a small cemetery adjacent to the building. The cemetery is laden with beautifully crafted tombstones of European settlers and young servicemen who did not make it home.
