“Iconic landmark but wish I could have gone in”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

It's difficult to miss this bright red-painted church in the middle of Dutch Square with the ornate Queen Victoria fountain right outside. Visiting on a Sunday afternoon, the area around the church was bustling with tourists looking for a photo opportunity. Unfortunately, the church itself was closed to visitors, presumably due to scheduled services.

“Well worth the visit”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

It was very spiritual and well preserved. It contained some headstones with such heartfelt comments from families who had lost their loved ones hundreds of years ago. Really opened your eyes to the sort of diseases that existed back then and how it could wipe out families, especially young children.

“Cute and old ....”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

worth a look - old with a lot of history ... plaques in the main church are moving to read. Taking a picture from outside is a good momento - colourful building and area.

“Symbol of Malacca, but...”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

It is the best spot to take a photo in Malacca, but the inside is just a common church and nothing impressive. So don't be disappointed even if the church is closed when you visit.

“Very good look at history; great epitaphs”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We visited here on a day when they were fairly busy. The trinket stand in the back of the chapel seemed a bit strange, but he lady there was very helpful & informative. The history here is amazing. We enjoyed reading some of the epitaphs & ended up buying the guide book.
