Lonely Planet review
Built by in 1880 to take control of the Upper Rejang and to keep the peace, this wooden fort – built of belian – was renamed in 1925 to honour Ranee Sylvia, wife of Charles Vyner Brooke. On the facade, lines mark the high-water marks of historic floods, one of which crested at an incredible 19m above normal. Inside, the exhibits offer a pretty good intro to the traditional lifestyles of the Batang Rejang Dayaks and include evocative photos of the colonial era. A worthwhile stop before you head to a longhouse.
