This old fort is a pretty neat, if brief, visit. It's a short climb to the top and you get good views out towards the Strait and back across Melaka. There isn't a whole lot to see in the fort, but the tombstones that are inside make interesting reading.

It's a historical place, but nothing much I would say. Well, if you are there, then visit this place. probably one time enough? Depends on what you like.

Everywhere we saw, it was written that its a church. So many stairs and hard labor, we get the shock that not only it isnt a church, we are actually standing on the graves of few old governors

A lovely space relatively free of the large volumes of people elsewhere in town to enjoy views across town and the ocean, and to explore the remains of the old church.

This is a rather isolated spot. to make things worse, during our visit a group of what looked like local vagrants was lounging in the tiny parking area at the foot of the hill. Female travelers beware - it doesn't take a stretch of imagination to picture the dodgy situations that could arise here.

went there to see some historical ruins, found the church on top overlooking the bay, very beautiful. Not a far walk from the bottom.

It's one of the things to visit on a quick walk around the town. The old tombstones are interesting as is the view. Also try the dutch cemetry nearby and sultans palace

This used to have a view-now all of the trees are mature, and there are a lot of buildings in the way. It won't take long to see the ruin.
