Fascinating Church and Graves giving some amazing insight into the history of the area. Explains a lot about the diverse building styles. Wonderful views.

I would suggest some handrails to help with the steepness of some of the stairs as they were uneven which didn't help especially when it is hot and steamy. Would love to sit and admire the view as well as assisting you in catching your breath after the climb. There were a few craft stores outside, but availability of cold water would have been welcomed by most I'm sure.

been climbing this hill everytime i visit Malacca. never been bored with this hill.. the place never change a bit, which i thing it needs some improvement. maybe some small cafe up there or along the side of the hill selling coffee, tea or cendol... people love staying up here. but no benches for visitors to make us stay longer up here. people selling the same thing. same souvenir years and years. nothing special in particular.

When we visited in August it was hot. Like off-the-scale hot, so if you are wandering around this historic site at that time of the year let common sense prevail and wear a hat and have lots of water. The ruins are interesting and the view of Melaka from the site can be good if it is a clear day.

gotta climb a lil bit to reach this place.but worth the stunning view from the top.
the church was very old and the wall looked very strong. and it's an empty building. you can see the view of Malacca from here. The Malacca river, Taming sari Tower,A.Famosa,etc can be seen from here.also enjoy the breeze!
spend at least 1 hour to enjoy and take pics.there are many good angles for photography :)
