Dutch Charm
Oct 2019
The building is very well maintained for hundreds of years. this building really symbolizes the Dutch Colonialism of Malaysia.

The most touristy place in Melaka, but....
Aug 2020
Swarming with visitors and vendors and trishaws, but this is pretty much obligatory for visitors. It's also something you'll pass on the way to pretty much anything on the east side of the river, so it will be part of the "attractions circuit" in any case.

Advance reading-up on the history of Melaka will give you a deeper experience when you see this, the Stadhuys, St Paul's Hill, and other nearby spots.

Should you do it?

Well, you can't leave Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower, so....."no" is not a possible answer!

Historical Church
May 2019
A big part of Melaka and Malaysia history. It is more than just a church, the history behind the church is great and just how important these details shape Melaka and Malaysia today.

Entry by donation, not one if the fanciest churches but steeped in history. Lovely place to wander through to get out of the sun

Small church only
Feb 2020 • Couples
Not much to see here so of little interest to most people. 10 minutes maximum is all you need. There is a small gift shop.

Beautiful church
Mar 2019
As the majority of the nearby buildings also the church is red outside.
The more interesting part is the exterior as it is quite fascinating.
The interior on the opposite doesn't present nothing of interesting.

An old church
Feb 2020 • Solo
Nothing really amazing here. Just an old historic church I in the tourist hub. Was rather a boring interior as old churches go. If your in the
area check it out.

Such History
Feb 2020
An amazing building when one looks at it - right in what was the old Dutch town of Melaka.
All painted in a red ochre colour. And amazing inside - quite plain interior in keeping with the Dutch traditions for church decoration. But fascinating we thought nevertheless. The wooden furniture dates back hundreds of years and the memorial plaques on the walls tell some stories of then important colony people and the difficulties faced in the late 1700s.
A must see when in Melaka.
