Where it all began...

Since 2014, this history rich town now goes by the original name of Manggatal, (meaning derived from the Malay word for "itchy mango") after it was changed back by the community's proposal.

As well as it's neighbouring town, Inanam, this area is where the legendary Kinabalu Guerillas, led by Albert Kwok, actively operated to fight the Japanese during World War II. They are also notably two of the last towns in Sabah that have pre-World War II era wooden shophouses still standing.

Upgraded & Newest Developments

Commercial Township

While the old wooden shops make a charming and unique touch, Manggatal and Inanam have a lot more to offer. Major establishments have been upgraded and the towns have since grown and matured into very livable communities with large hypermarkets and plazas such as;

  • Servay Hypermarket
  • CKS Supermarket, Manggatal
  • Inanam Shopping Mall
  • Plaza Menggatal


No other suburb in Kota Kinabalu has a higher density and concentration of banks. Here you can find all the major banks and ATMs, including Maybank, CIMB, RHB, Public, Alliance and HSBC.

Educational Institutes

There are many schools here from kindergarten to college and university. Since a new campus opened between Tuaran Bypass and Jalan Sulaman of the highly sought-after university, Institut Sinaran in 2010, Inanam has seen an increase in demand for student accommodation.
