Beautiful architecture inside out , with an old organ inside the church facing the... More

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.

Located at busy street, St. Francis Xavier Church surprisingly does not get as much attention as compared to Christ Church. However, this church is worth a second look. The exterior looks simple but if you really observed the façade, you will appreciate time spent here. Do note the church grounds close early so its best to come around 10am to... More
