i did not find anything interesting in this church. It is just a normal church(atleast for me), just like many other churches in Kerala, India. Located at a busy street

The road in front of the church is very busy and I passed there when arrive Malacca. But the place is much quieter than Christ Church as there wasn’t any tourist around. It is a beautiful church but I only saw it from the outside because it was closed around 17:00 when we went there. The facade is very beautiful.

Nice architecture if you look from a distance, but as soon as you get closer you see the building slowly starts falling apart. The interiors are very poor and disappointing, especially as for a catholic church

Open to visitors through the side door, the church still serves the Catholic population of Melaka. If you want some solitude, a nice place to sit and pray. It's location is between Little India and Dutch Square, and has both daily and Sunday mass.
