St. Anne's Church Bukit Mertajam has existed since 1833 when the Chinese and Indian Catholics from Batu Kawan settled in the foothills of Bukit Mertajam. These people were farmers who had come to clear the land for cultivation. It was the very first Catholic Church built on top of the hill in Bukit Mertajam between 1840 and 1860. Today, tens of thousands of people throng the grounds of St. Anne's Church to attend its grand 10-day festival held annually in July.
