The steps of the staircase to the top is said to be 100 steps. The place is opened only on Sunday at 1000am.

The architecture of this church is unlike any church in the world and its three architects symbolize 3 candlesticks meaning "Trinity" according to the beliefs of the Roman Catholic religion.Historically, the construction of this unique church was developed by Father Richard Khoo, who is among the most famous Roman Catholic Christian religious leaders in Sarawak. It was built sometime over the screams and contributions of Christians in Sri Aman at that time.

The uniqueness and beauty of the church is once again manifested as every detail also takes into account the doctrine of Christianity. Because it is constructed in a hilly area, the Mount Hosanna Chapel also has a walkway. These 100 steps are also known as "Laden Jacob's" (Jacob's Ladder) who also follow the beliefs of Christians as well as stairs to heaven (a ladder to heaven).Mount Hosanna Chapel has its own distinctive and Christianity in Sri Aman in general knows the uniqueness. And for sure, this unique white church is also one of the symbols of racial and religious tolerance in Sarawak that has always been preserved by its people to make Sarawak a "special" compared to other states throughout Malaysia.
