Christ Church

The Christ Church is located within the Red Square, historical part of the Melacca Old Town, right next to the Melacca river. It looks amazing at night.

Set in Red Square, this location is currently an Anglican church. The exterior remains in its original form but the interior is rather bland & functional. Worth a look for historical interest.

This historic church is very plain inside, although the reredos is attractively decorated. There is no entrance fee so, as a tourist attraction, it is worth popping into. I did not attend a service and no clergy were around, seemingly, although there were some ladies selling small items by the entrance.

However, the church's wonderful heritage was marred by a very unsavoury encounter with a rude, aggressive lady at the entrance to the church. I initially overheard her telling some Asian tourists to make a... More

Malaka is steeped in Colonial history-Portuguese-Dutch-English and Japanese. As a result there are many styles of building. Worth a visit!
