The red brick building was really stunning but there was little activity in the church except for the street stalls nearby. The stalls sell really funny stuff and souvenirs. It was hot though, bring along an umbrella if you can.

free to visit, donations kindly appreciated. Inside is simple but since you will come here on a Melaka visit, take a 3 minute peek inside. Simple compared to most European churches though. Outside is nice and a good photo op.

Go and have a look for your self. This is the heart of Melaka Historical center. The church was build with stones from the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. Amazing that a building like this is still there.

It's Steeped in history, and well worth a visit, We loved the picture of the last supper behind the altar, painted on tiles and still vibrant colours, the Dutch tombstones., the special cane chairs,

Interesting to see how the history of Christ Church intertwined with the modern history of Meleka, changing from Dutch and British rule to modern day

This place is insanity! The crowd is unbearable and too many vendors harassing you to buy things from them. Not our favourite place.
