It maybe boring for some people but I found it interesting to visit the graveyards. It is a nice experience to discover the history of Melacca. On the other hand, the graveyards is a nice place for photo taking.

As with many of the sites in Malacca, you don't really visit this one on its own. It's a piece of jigsaw that you should see in perspective of everything else. Do it as part of the historical trail by all means. Don't come here for a photo op, or to be entertained.

This is actually called the Dutch Graveyard but there are 33 British graves here comparing to only 5 Dutch ones. The graveyard was first used in the last quarter of the 17th century. The last person buried here was in 1838.
