Notes on the Geography of Malaysia: Colonial Kuching (Official): Photo 2
Charles Brooke inserted into the triangle of the main bazaar a government quarter. Its core was this courthouse with an adjoining administrative office. Over the decades, a cluster of similar buildings was added at the rear. It was handsome, if severe. The clocktower was a much later and rather pompous addition, as is the Brooke Monument, which stands here front and center. It was erected in 1924, after Charles' death.
