Malaysia's first and oldest state legislative assembly meeting place

BINTULU

The site marked the place where Malaysia's first and oldest state legislative assembly meeting took place on 8th September, 1867. With Charles Brooke, the second white Rajah of Sarawak in the chair, there sat 5 of his British Officers and 16 Malay and Melanau Members (Chiefs) to mark a new era in the conduct of the affairs of the state. A centenary stone commemorating the centennial of the historical meeting was erected on this site in 1967 and was further improved to include a clock tower and fountain in 1987, the fountain was attractively fenced up in November 1998 for safety and aesthetically purpose.
