Picture of 141 years old Charles Brooke Palace or Astana Sarawak. The Astana, then called the Government House, was built in 1870 by the second White Rajah of Sarawak, Charles Brooke, as a wedding gift to his wife, Margaret Alice Lili de Windt. The couple married at Highworth, Wiltshire on 28 October 1869 and she was raised to the title of Ranee of Sarawak with the style of Her Highness upon their marriage.
The Astana is a palace in Kuching, Sarawak, on the north bank of the Sarawak River, opposite the Kuching Waterfront. It is the official residence of the Yang di-Pertua Negeri Sarawak, the Governor of Sarawak. The name is a variation of 'istana', meaning 'palace'.Full Feed Generated by Get Full RSS, sponsored by Used Car Search.
