Provided is an endoscope that makes it possible to easily and precisely position an imaging lens and a solid-state imaging element. The endoscope is provided with an imaging device 20 at the distal end of an insertion part which can be inserted into a body cavity. The imaging device is provided with the following: a lens barrel 22 for holding an imaging lens 23; an image sensor 21 that photoelectrically converts imaging light incident on an image receiving surface thereof via the imaging lens, the outer periphery of the image receiving surface being a rectangular shape; and a sensor holder 40 that holds the image sensor in a state in which the image receiving surface intersects the lengthwise direction of the insertion part. The sensor holder includes: a fitting part 41 that fits with the lens barrel; and an extending wall part 42 that extends from the fitting part in the lengthwise direction of the insertion part and covers at least a portion of the outer peripheral surface of the image sensor. The fitting part is integrally formed with the extending wall part.
