Location : Sri Aman, Sarawak, Malaysia.
Fort Alice, built in 1864, is the oldest heritage building in Sri Aman, constructed following the victory of Rajah Charles Brooke, the second Rajah of Sarawak, over Rentap, the last of the major Iban chieftains. The Fort was named after Charles Brooke’s wife, Margaret Alice Lili de Windt. It served as a defensive structure controlling the Lupar River. (Wikipedia)
The 150 year old fort was completely knocked down and rebuilt. It opened its doors again last Saturday (18 April 2015) not to bombard marauding Iban pirates but as a very friendly and pleasant museum.
Had it not been for the rebirth of Fort Alice I would not have made the 3 hour long drive to Simanggang or Sri Aman which is situated along the bank of Batang (River) Lupar, the abode of the legendary Bujang Senang the most feared crocodile that once roamed this river.
