The Fountain

Beautiful fountain, a testimonial of British presence in the country and its located next to the Dutch and Portuguese historical sites. Plenty of attractions nearby.

The Queen Victoria Fountain is a great place to sit and watch the world go by and to take a breather from the humidity and all the walking you have worked up. It's historical and a genuine work of art and the respite it gives from the fountain is best enjoyed in the afternoon.

A nice small example of a typical Colonial tribute to Queen Victoria. Many similar fountains and statues spread across the British Empire. This fountain is in the main Red Square which is the centre of historical Melaka.

too many visitors at weekend. Better go there in the early morning or at sunset. A unique historical monument.

Good place to take photo. Nothing impressive. But it is one of the icons of Melaka, near Christ Church and Jonker Walk. So no harm taking a phot with it when you pass by.

The fountain is iconic of Malacca. It's a must visit to have a photo taken as souvenir of your time in Malacca. Another photo opportunity is the Christ Church on the other side of the square. Easy to get to and within walking distance of Jonker St, the Stadhuys and if you can brave the Malaccan sun, St Peter's.

nothing special with this fountain. located in the middle of the Red Square, to add some interesting point on Red Square area. don't forget to take your camera and capture it.

Since not much info can be obtained from this landmark, you can just take photos of and with the fountain. It's a good place to sit down and relax, or to jump off the tour.

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