We saw this building from our hotel room and wanted to check it out. We took a boot across the river but it was rather difficult to reach the fort. It looks very close but there is no real path from the river to the...More

Looks like a small fort but it was build for the Brooks wife and much later converted to a prison. There is a restaurant at the ground floor now. Worth a visit as it is located at the river bank.

Near to waterfront, behind it you can see the DUN. You can go down near to the river and capture a picture with a crocodile statue.

Walking on the waterfront, our eyes caught an unique architecture. We didnt see a tower like this in anywhere in Kuching so we were really fascinated by it. Visitors must check this out.
