Tua Pek Kong Tem­ple

Sarawak Business Travel Guide - - Front Page - Lonely Planet

“A mod­est wooden struc­ture ex­isted on the site of this colour­ful river­front Taoist tem­ple as far back as 1871; it was re­built in 1897 but badly dam­aged by Al­lied bombs in 1942… For panoramic views over the town and the muddy Batang Re­jang, climb the sev­en­storey Kuan Yin Pagoda, built in 1987; the best time is sun­set, when a swirl of swiftlets buzzes around the tower at eye level.”
