A testament to the British colonial era, Queen Victoria's Fountain stands as a majestic, marble fountain erected in 1904 to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee and to commemorate her status as the longest reigning monarch in the history of England and Scotland. The fountain sits in the middle of a Dutch square, surrounded by red Dutch houses, and is one of the last traces of British colonization in the country. The fountain is in close proximity to other important heritage sites and is surrounded by benches, souvenir shops, and refreshment stands.

  • Amazing place to enjoy and witness. The greatness of Melaka starts off from here! Superb clean and lovely to hang out
  • Beautiful, elegant..Queen Victoria's fountain was build in 1901 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. It is at the central of Dutch Red Square. A popular tourist spot for photograph. It will be very crowded during weekend and public holidays. To get a good snapshot, come during weekday when there is less crowd. Parking is available on the little hill beside Stadhuys building, and also further away near the maritime museum
