Princess Hang Li Po. Believed to be the 5th wife of the Sultan of Melaka in the 1500s. Believed to be given by China. No records are found in China about this princess or marriage. But, she is a popular part of Malaysia’s history. This is her well or rather the King’s well. Used to be the main source of fresh water for the city. This well was believed to have never ran dry even though in drought season!

The Hang Li Po Well is a heritage site of Melaka and is a historical well that dates back to the 15th century. Initially built by the Sultan Mansur Syah for the exclusive use of his Chinese queen, its importance over the centuries is due to the reliable water supply. The well is housed in a small fort which was built by the Dutch to guard this important source of freshwater. The well is now covered with a metal cover and you can still look into it. There’s water in the well, but it’s becoming overgrown with plants. It’s not the most exciting thing to see in Melaka, but worth a quick look if you have time and like history.

This was one of our first stops during our day trip to Melacca. Our guide explained that the well was built by a Sultan for his wife and was said to never dry up. Given Malacca's chequered past with various invasions, the well was poisoned on various occasions to try to kill off anyone coming to attack Malacca. Walls were built around it to protect it, but eventually it was abandoned. It's right next to a small Chinese temple and a few market stalls. Worth a visit, but read up on it first, as we didn't realise this was part of our tour.
