This small street is adjunction to Carpenter Street and Ewe Hai Street. It is also known as “Little Side Street” (横街仔) or “Side Street” (它横街). It leads to Main Bazaar and at the end of the street was a gate leading to the garden of the Diocese of Kuching. The bishops and church mission used this gate to do their marketing at the bazaar. The gate called as the “Bishop’s Gate” is where the street gained its name. In 1993, the government built a road behind the Bishop’s gate and the gate has lost its original function. The once prominent gate is now reduced to its Belian frame.
