Kota Kinabalu / Jesselton (Old day & Modern Day)




One fact that I dunno know about Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia is

" Once known as Jesselton, this capital city of Sabah was renamed Kota Kinabalu in 1968 after Mount Kinabalu. The city faces the vast expanse of the South China Sea while the rolling hills and mountains of Borneo's Crocker Range provide a panoramic background".

I'm so glad to learn all these facts from postcard :)


See the below postcard for the image of Jesselton in circa 1904.
Jesselton was the chief town on the west coast of North Borneo, long before it became modern-day Sabah and the town, today's Kota Kinabalu City.
