“I love this place”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The most iconic place for Melaka. Please come here if this is the first visit of yours to Melaka.

When i used to work in dataran pahlawan shoppping mall (next to the hill), I will come up to the top of the hill just to have the view and sight to calm my mind.

“Great history”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Love this place. It really represents Malacca for me. The breeze is great, the ambiance is gentle and embracing. It's well worth the walk to the top.

“Historical place. Could be better”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

A short climb up from the fort takes you to this place. Lot of tombstones with some of them dating back to 1650s. I wish there was a little more information around for this place as i didnt really come across anything apart from the inscriptions on the tombstones. A few vendors selling trinkets are at the entrance. The view of the city is pretty good from here. On your way down, you will come across a huge banyan tree near the parking lot driveway. Visit once if you are in malacca

“History with a vew”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Loved the view. Don't be put off by the hill as it is only a short walk and well worth it. The church bit is interesting and if you can strike up a conversation with one of the vendors then you can learn a bit more and just while away 15 mintues with a chat. Nice. Pretty good view of the Straits so that's a bonus.

“Piece of History”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is well worth the visit, it is free of charge and apart from the junk sellers it just great history. As the day tends to get very hot plan to go early and enjoy it prior to all the tours groups arriving. Lots of really great photo areas so check your camera battery.
