Gunung Mulu National Park Unique Post Box

While organising my items, I found the postcard that I wanted to write about on a little known unique post box. This post box is located in Gunung Mulu National Park. There are 2 boxes, one at the park headquarters and after a bit of searching, another is found inside the Deer Cave.

It is the first post box inside a UNESCO World Heritage Cave! The post box was installed way back in July 2017.

The second post box is installed in the Gunung Mulu National Park headquarters.

Here is a picture of a personal postcard processed through the Miri Mail Centre (Pusat Mel Miri) Sarawak on 26 February 2020.

Design copyright of the postcard: Dr Indraneil Das

The Malaysia Book of Records recognised this achievement on 14 March 2019.

The Deer Cave entrance is famous for the profile of Abraham Lincoln which is also the cachet of the park. This cachet is not made by Pos Malaysia.

I want to record my appreciation to Dr Indraneil Das for the postcard. It certainly expanded the knowledge of the unique post boxes found in Malaysia. This was a rather unexpected and surprising find as I was not even aware of the existance.

Have you come across any other unique post boxes?

I have updated the article on unique post boxes:
