Kuching Then – Now

60 stunning photographs. 150 eventful years. One amazing city.

Like scrolling through Kuching’s official Instagram account, but BETTER.


Inspired by the active Facebook Group, “Kuching – Then and Now”, 60 carefully selected photographs come together to tell the tale of how Kuching has grown and blossomed in the past 150 years. 


Curated by the Sarawak Heritage Society (SHS), this photo exhibition aims to raise awareness on the importance of preserving the rich history and built heritage of our beloved Cat City. Heritage, both tangible and intangible, must be preserved so that generations to come may too partake in the unique cultural and historical beauty of Kuching.


In addition to the stunning visual exhibition, SHS representatives will be present at small discussion booths during specified times, to engage curious visitors in discussion on the challenges of heritage conservation and protection. Take this opportunity to sign up as an SHS member to play a more active role in preserving the heritage of Kuching city!
