Gumbo's Pic of the Day, June 28, 2014: Tua Pek Kong Temple, Kuching


Kuching, in Malaysian Borneo, was founded by an adventurous Englishman, Rajah James Brooke, on the Sarawak River that was the only access to the interior of that part of Borneo.  He encouraged Chinese traders from the earliest days to do business to supply his regime,  and Tua Pek Kong Temple, built circa 1843 beside the river,  is most likely the oldest surviving structure in the city.
