  • Nice church in the central square. Seemed quite busy. Quite warm inside. Dates back to a long time back but didn’t spend too much time inside as we wanted to explore quite a few attractions locally.  more »
  • What a unique color to be used for the exterior of a church building! The most popular background for a wedding photo! A second icon of Melaka after the A Farmosa city gate. Do walk into the building ...  more »

  • A place for us to rest under the hot sun. Umbrella is recommended . Church doesn't seem special and lot of tourist stop by there. Few souvenir shop beside the church. Opposite the church sell watermelon juice which is very refreshing. It did help us to cooling down . Cost RM8 for small melon , RM 10 for a bigger one. The owner will dig a hole and blend directly inside the melon. So u can drink your chill juice freshly . Ice is recommended to request add on. (F.O.C ice). Overall experience is good.
  • Peaceful place, visit sightseeing... The church were long time ago keeps colorful
