Originally named the Dutch reformed Church, the building bears all the landmarks of 18th century Dutch Architecture. Each of the 15 meter long roof beams are carved from a single tree.There are no aisles or chancel but there is an exquisite replica of the Last Supper in glazed tiles.Like most European Churches in those days, the floors are paved and...

去过马来西亚两次,一直很喜欢他们的海滩,去年的旅行决定去马六甲,终于发现有文化底蕴的地方了。红教堂我们没有进去,只是在外面照照相,人很多。 It is a culture spot ,we just took few photos, didn't enter the church, but nice architect and unique building in the surrounding area.

This little church was built in 1753 by the Dutch to commemorate their centenary of owning Melaka. It was taken over in 1795 by the British who turned it Anglican and added a weather cock on top. It is plainly decorated inside with white-washed walls. Trisha drivers clog up the road infront, ringing their bells to get your attention. The... More

The church is beautifully kept, with excellent records detailing the history of the building and the artifacts. Originally built by the Dutch, it was later used by the English when they took over Melaka and although they used some of the smaller items for other purposes, the important features like the pulpit have been maintained.

This building is beautiful with its red color. When I came here at noon, the surrounding was not too crowded, so we can take a lot of picture without bothered by passing people. A lot of stall selling clothes and food around, so it was not sacred anymore... its look like market... so touristy.
