The complex is located at the north bank of the Sarawak River in between the Astana, which is the official residence of the Yang di-Pertua Negeri [Governor] of Sarawak and Fort Margherita.
The building was officially opened by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong [King] of Malaysia, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin on 27 July 2009.
This nine-storey high building is the venue for future Sarawak's new state legislative assembly sittings. The distinctive "payung" [umbrella] roof of the new DUN complex is an iconic landmark for Sarawak.
The architecture of the new complex combines unique elements of Sarawak's heritage with state-of-the-art intelligent building automation systems, multimedia communication facilities, and environmentally-friendly features.
The building is fully equipped with high-tech information and communication technology. This new DUN complex, perched on the promontory on the pristine bank of the Sarawak River and nestled between the Astana and Fort Margherita, has been described as one of the most beautiful buildings in Southeast Asia.
It is also a depiction of the state’s struggles and achievements over the years after gaining independence through the formation of Malaysia and as a multi-racial society. Reinforced by nine gigantic pillars and numerous arches, the building reflects the sovereignty of the people’s power as well as the support of all the races in the state.
