Lovely historical monument

Recently painted it is a lovely reminder of the past. Situated along the riverfront near other beautiful buildings from a long time ago. Good photo opportunities.

Located at the end of Kuching Waterfront; this Small Tower had definitely seen it better days….but it is newly painted and well maintain. Unfortunately, it all locked up! Soon there will be a new bridge beside it linking up to the Astana, the opposite of the river. Works are still in progress, hopefully by then; it will be open again!

Locked up during all the time I was there. A pity, because it has a great history and dates back to the beginning of Sarawak. Has been many things and its last use was as a dance hall.

There is absolutely nothing interesting about this "attraction" except it's great age and undeniably cubic architecture. It's not open to the public and you can't even peer through the windows. Such a waste. Would have loved to see the dungeons below.

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.
