The color of this church was interesting - red/burgundy - it matched all of the buildings in the square as well as the surrounding streets. Inside, once I got past the religious souvenir stands, it was quite cavernous - lots of dark wood (ceiling and pews). The alter was modest with an interesting relief depicting the Last Supper.

Interesting that it's still used for regular worship. Lovely red facade. Old interior and pews. Peaceful & contemplative atmosphere.

Christ Church was built in 1753 to celebrate the 100 years of Dutch "occupation" of Malacca. It is now the Anglican church here. When you walk in to this church you feel the history of Malacca and how England, Portugal and the Netherlands were fighting to gain power over Malacca.

I used to see photographs of this old Church in old school text books and tourist guide books. A strange reddish pink shade on the exterior. Safe for a few of the curious, it was empty when I went in and looked around. I like old churches so my opinion is biased. Surprisingly, on the outside you'll find street vendor... More

Lovely church in the middle of Dutch Square. Good for photos. You can usually find some amazingly decorated trishaws hanging about outside which are quite amusing. Nice museum about Malaysia Youth organisations next door.

The church is well maintained. It is also currently being used as a place of worship. They have a few service on sunday. It give you a glimpse into how the early day church in Melaka look like.

I got up early to wander around the old city on a Monday. As early as 7:00am I visited a mosque, a Hindu temple, and two Buddhist/Taoist temples, but this church, well, it wasn't set to open until 9am. I was leaving that morning so I thought I had to get the chance to peek inside this church; after all,... More
