Looks like a small fort but it was build for the Brooks wife and much later converted to a prison. There is a restaurant at the ground floor now. Worth a visit as it is located at the river bank.

Near to waterfront, behind it you can see the DUN. You can go down near to the river and capture a picture with a crocodile statue.

Nothing really special! Its just a small building in front of the brooke memorial. May the restaurant inside is better and more interesting
