  • An old church with a lot of history tied to Melaka and the region. It's clean and well maintained. The church offers services to its local Christian community, and it's a good place for local and foreign tourists to visit to understand the history of ancient Melaka and it's often turbulent history of colonialism and ethnicity. The church offers a glimpse of history that should never be forgotten especially among Malaysians.
  • Beatiful church! Especially when lit during the evening it stands out!
