The gabled Twelve Roofs House was once the residence of the British High Commissioners. Today the complex displays photos illustrating British involvement in Brunei and the ‘special relationship’ between the two countries. After centuries as a local hegemony, Brunei gradually lost its grip and was taken over by the British. The sultanate gained complete autonomy in 1984, but keeps close ties with Queen Elizabeth II.
