Kuching my Home Town - History
Kuching is a unique city among historic cities in Asia. It is the only place to have been ruled by White Rajahs. The White Rajahs were members of the Brooke family which ruled Sarawak for over 100 years.
Due to this unique history, Kuching has some interesting built heritage, in the form of buildings built during the Brooke era, and later on the Colonial era.
The Old Courthouse - as it is commonly referred to in Kuching, was actually an administrative centre built by the Brookes. It was later used as the courthouse by the Sarawak Government, hence the common name. It has been altered extensively over the years, and in the most recent incarnation, it has become the Sarawak Tourism complex.
