There is nothing much here to see already not as more then 20 years back where this place still have the rhythm fountain in operation which is very amazing to look at, now this place a bit messy and the fountain area are also quite dirty, the only beauty at the moment is the DUN right in front of this...

This slice of Sarawak's past is located right on the waterfront and I believe it was a former prison. Currently it has been reincarnated as a bar/restaurant but other than that you can only view it from the outside. Unfortunately it will be totally overshadowed by the new mosque and bridge development right next to it .

This square tower is located along the waterfront Kuching. I believe it is a restaurant now. It is one of the oldest building in Kuching.

Not much to this rather small white square of a building but it does look much better when lighted at night. Located close to where the new bridge is being constructed.

There's not really much to be seen here. The tower itself is pretty enough, but it didn't seem to be open when I visited. A quick stop and a quite photo opportunity and you're off.

The tower is small and square. Promenade alongside the river starts there. It's nothing much (the tower, I mean) but quite nice in the evening with colorfull fountains around.

It is actually a lot smaller then you would think when judging by the name of the attraction. It is really nice looking, but since it was being repainted, I almost missed it because of all the work being done around it.

The new Mosque on the River and Bridge development will completely drown out this bit of old Kuching history.
