  • Nice to see but nothing fancy as esplanada, from the visit. It is built for the woman Charles Brooke, the son of James Brooke discovered that Kuching. James didn't have so much a Palace, but when Charles succeeded him found his wife it is time that they once more beautiful. It's called Astana when derived from Istana, which means Royal.

  • We hired a taxi and went to Astana but we had to see it from the outside as visitors were not allowed to go inside without prior permission. 
  • You can see this building clearly from the opposite side of the river. Astana is the official residence of the Yang Dipertua Negeri Sarawak. A grand, big and quite an imposing landmark.
