Places of interest in
SIMANGGANG (SRI AMAN)


The journey from Sri Aman to Jakar is very comfortable as the road is quite smooth compare to any parts of the road in the state.

 

From Jakar drive toward East to  Sarikei  to Lanang bridge. The toll is RM5 but the journey is shorter compare to Durin.

The journey after  Jakar to Bintulu is about two hours plus on an uneven road.

Some parts of the roads are good but the rest no.

There shouldn't be a problem for a four wheel drive to get through the road. On reaching Bintulu-Miri junction, stop at the coffee shop for a light refreshment.

Fort Alice

1864 Fort Alice built at Simanggang.

 


The town of Simanggang was established by the White Rajah in 1849 and served as a fort as well as an administrative centre for the government.

In 1849, the Raja of Sarawak built a fort called James Fort at the mouth of Skrang River. Few years later in 1853, James fort was attached by Rentap and his follows but failed. Rentap was a warrior from the famous Dayak Skrang tribe.

Jun 1864, that James Fort was shifted to Simanggang because the place was more suitable. The fort that was rebuilt was named after Rani Margaret and was called Alice Fort.

Fort Alice marked the start of development for Simanggang. The first Resident of Simanggang was James Brooke.

At the end of 1973, the town of Simanggang renamed Sri Aman in conjunction with the surrender of the Kalimantan communist. On 21 October 1973, Simanggang was chosen as the place to hold the ceremony for signing the Memorandum of Understanding between the government which was represented by Datuk Patinggi Haji Abdul Rahman Ya’akub with Bong Kee Chok, the leader of the Communist in Sarawak
