Attraction details
Reviewed 20 March 2013

this landmark has been around since the begining of the Brunei Sultanate. the property used to be the home of 1st Governor of Sarawak, Pengiran Indera Makhota Muhammad Salleh. He lost his power and influences and the house he lived in had a new occupant. His name was James Brooke. this house was burnt down during the chinese rebellion in 1857. the structure you see know was rebuilt by Rajah Charles Johnson Brooke for his bride, Margerita. The story goes it's haunted!

It's a building over the water which you cannot enter... Very pointless, there's and million and one better and more interesting things to do in Kuching. This is not an attraction...

The governor of Sarawak used to reside in this gorgeous colonial building. We heard that it is used to receive visiting dignitaries, so travellers aren't allowed to enter the premises.

Nice to snap photos when we are at the water front in the evening.Disliked as we can·t enter it and come nearer.

Good location to photograph from the waterfront and over the water. No visitors inside which is a shame as it could be really grand.
Good landmark
