Astana at Kuching Sarawak

Astana is the official residence of the Governor of Sarawak, also called the Yang Di-Pertua Negeri. It is located along the bank of the Sarawak River in Kuching, Sarawak.

The Astana, which means "palace" in the local dialect, was constructed in 1870 for the newly married Charles Brooke, the second Rajah of Sarawak.
