Hey, guys, Brooke is very important in Sarawak History, James Brooke is the founder of Sarawak. Without him, there will be no Sarawak.

Firstly the ugly building shouldn't be built. Secondly, it shouldn't be built in that location. Thirdly, it is a pity they have to disturb the grave and relocate a historically significant site. Leaving it there would perhaps elevate the significance of the brookes and connect the past with the present.

The brookes were never penjajahs, but our history books paint it that way. In a way, Sarawak is like a colony under Msia where it has given up so many of its natural resources and rights to the federal govt. The Sabah govt is looking to reverse some of this... I wonder if pek moh's people will.

Back to the graves - it highlights the high mortality rates of those days. Most of the remains are those who died during childbirth, or children who died at a young age due to diseases which are easily prevented these days, or mothers who died while giving birth. They were gritty people. May they rest in peace.

Sarawak was never under the protection/shelter of British after Charles Vyner Brooke surrendered the entire state to British Government, as soon as the 2nd War World was over.

...finally,you're talking.RIGHT,disturbing graves that is what happening. i posted this topic up because i personally thinks that,its not right & wise at all to relocate The Brookes.so what is this DUN ? you can built your big building & you can leave the graves aside because its not a hindrances at all to the overall plan.The Brookes graves are very very important & significant to Sarawak.

Oh dear, look at the graves. They look entirely abandoned without any proper refurbishment. Awful, hur?

Yes, it is sad to look at those pictures...

In Indonesia we have a saying: A great nation is one that honour its heros (past leaders included).

I got this from Forbidden Kingdom: Honour your teacher, and you honour yourself.

since it had been relocated to a 'better' or 'more accessible place', why don't we make a point to visit it at least once a year, like honouring our ancestors. that tomb is the closest we can get to James Brooke.

I hope the person who came up with the idea of relocating their graves gets haunted continuously by the Brooke family.
