Old but beautiful

It's one of the historical landmarks of Melaka, won't take you more than 10minutes to inspect it and take few pictures.

Visited the Queen Victoria fountain on 1 May 2015 ,a very crowded day since morning because its a national holiday. The Fountain is located in the same area as The Stadthuys Malacca and the Christ Church, so it would be definitely visible. It is just beside the Tan Beng Siew Clock Tower. The fountain was built to commemorate the Diamond... More

Is a beautiful sculpture and I really love this design of fountain. but due to visiting during a peak season holiday, over crowded But I passed by once during the night time, It was actually very beautiful at the night time. Take a visit during at night like after 8pm, You will like it.

Not particularly interesting. Placed In the centre of tourist attraction, which I wouldn't really call an attraction

Well, it’s just a fountain but it is in the Dutch Square so you’re going to see it. It’s a nice fountain and you can take some nice photos but it’s always a crowded area. People sit around the fountain so it’s almost impossible to take a photo without also taking the people there.

Surrounded by the Red Houses and beautiful fountain, especially at night when the lights are on, Many photo ops around, getting there by early morning you can see its beautiful place without the crowd of tourist

A great spot to start your walk around the Old Town sites. The fountain is well preserved and set in pretty gardens. Go early or late for a photo as very crowded during the day.

Beautiful fountain if you can see at night with the fountain on. and if the place is not too crowded. But be careful with the wild birds...

This is the busiest and most crowded part of the Dutch Square because of tourist having their photos taken beside Queen Victoria's Fountain! With the large crowd always hanging around to take photos, its so hard to take perfect photos without photo bombers lurking around! You have to be patient and wait for your turn and perfect time to capture... More
