Temples and Cultural Kuching Sarawak

Tua Pek Kong Temple

Kuching has many ornate Chinese temples and this is the oldest in the city. A celebration to commemorate the spirit of the dead is especially popular here. This celebration is called Wang Kang. The temple was built in 1843 but official records only recognized its existence in 1876.

Longhouse Tours

Ethnic groups in Sarawak live in longhouses. A longhouse accommodates all the families in the village under one roof. Families have separate rooms while members group together in the veranda for communal activities. Join a longhouse tour and learn more about the different ethnic cultures in Sarawak.
