An interesting building at the end of the Esplanade. The building is a historical remnant from the Brooks period of Kuching's history. The two serpent figures guarding the stairs from the river add a nice touch to any photos.

This is a spot for photos and people to view the structure which was built during the colonial period. The landmark is part of the waterfront or esplanade. Opposite is the Old Courthouse.

This white old building is a distincitve landmark of the Kuching waterfront. Everybody stops here to catch a photo of the tower with the Sarawak parliament in the background. Nice view and nothing else.

A well preserved relic of the Colonial period that will not hold one's interest beyond a photo. Not to be missed is an interesting bronze of a dragon on the steps leading to the river. It projects its menacing view at the Sarawak Parliament Building across the river.

This relic of the Brooke colonial era is impossible to miss and helps imagine how the waterfront may have looked to boats coming up the Sarawak River. An obligatory photo subject and possible landmark reference but the interaction ends there.
