a small quiet place with rich history. There is a stall set up to sell some souvenirs at very competitive and affordable price in which the proceeds goes to the funding of the church.
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.
We spent a whole week here in Melaka and the church was not open once. Not sure of the reason, but we would have enjoyed taking a peek inside. From the outside it is nothing special, and it is painted exactly the same as all the other buildings in Dutch Square. Once again, I think all the tacky market stalls... More
It's difficult to miss this bright red-painted church in the middle of Dutch Square with the ornate Queen Victoria fountain right outside. Visiting on a Sunday afternoon, the area around the church was bustling with tourists looking for a photo opportunity. Unfortunately, the church itself was closed to visitors, presumably due to scheduled services.
It was very spiritual and well preserved. It contained some headstones with such heartfelt comments from families who had lost their loved ones hundreds of years ago. Really opened your eyes to the sort of diseases that existed back then and how it could wipe out families, especially young children.
It is the best spot to take a photo in Malacca, but the inside is just a common church and nothing impressive. So don't be disappointed even if the church is closed when you visit.
We visited here on a day when they were fairly busy. The trinket stand in the back of the chapel seemed a bit strange, but he lady there was very helpful & informative. The history here is amazing. We enjoyed reading some of the epitaphs & ended up buying the guide book.
The church is interesting with lots of history. Upon entering the church I was greeted by an angry lady and tacky church souvenirs. They need to redesign the entrance layout and place the gift shop elsewhere. It is quite hot and stuffy inside the church. would truly recommend to avoid this place in the afternoon .
It is one of Melaka's landmarks however like many landmarks, probably just for its appearance. The striking pink building is interesting to see and is obviously Dutch but once you go inside you simply see a small church, with hardly any unique features. The front third of the small room is taken up with a gift stall and other stuff... More
