Mount Singai is located in Bau, a 45 minutes drive from Kuching where I lived. The Bidayuhs, a tribe here settled in this area in 1800s as its steep slopes provided protection against their enemies.

Today Mount Singai is a popular hiking trail famous for its lush beautiful forests.

The area is also a pilgrimage site for Catholics and this sculpture represents the 130 anniversary of the Catholic Church in Mount Singai.
