Huge and imposing, visible from almost anywhere along the waterfront. According to the locals, you haven't properly visited Kuching if you haven't taken a picture with it. It's closed off to the general public though, you can cross a footbridge right up to it but...More

The Sarawak State Administration Centre unfortunately "imposes" itself on everything on the northern bank of the Sarawak River. The historic charm of Astana and Fort Margherita, in my opinion is tarnished by it`s presence.

This building, the parliament building, dominates the northern side of the Sarawak River opposite the Waterfront Promenade. It's a striking building during the day, but really becomes a piece of art/architecture at night when illuminated. Add this to the illumination of the Golden "S" Bridge...More

This is a state Legislature building. This building is quite new. with a beautiful dome in yellow. This building is just beside the bridge that crosses the Sarawak river.. As I went there is in tghe evening, I just saw the beauty from outside.

This building seems to dominate the waterfront in the city. It's design, we were told, was a combination of Malay, Chinese and ethnic styles. As a simple traveler, lovely as it is, it's design (and presumably cost) seems a bit 'over the top.'

It could be seen as a bit of modern architecture alongside the river that adds flavour to the town by drawing on regional styles, or it could be seen as the monstrosity dominating the skyline and dwarfing Kuching's historic buildings. It's a statement of power...More
