  • The church is interesting, and worth going inside, but it is nothing special and is quite dull on the inside, the only reason the place stands out is because it's painted bright red on the outside

  • The church is a well known landmark in Malacca and is worth checking out when in the old part of the city. Malacca has a lot of history and was under three different colonial powers and before that, a powerful sultunate and this diverse history shows. This church is reminiscent of the Dutch colonial rule in Malacca.
  • Beautiful red coloured colonial era buildings situated at the centre of Melaka city. A must visit place when in Melaka. Strolling around the area and you will find other beautiful old historical buildings that still well preserved.
