“European Architecture”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

This little church was built in 1753 by the Dutch to commemorate their centenary of owning Melaka. It was taken over in 1795 by the British who turned it Anglican and added a weather cock on top. It is plainly decorated inside with white-washed walls. Trisha drivers clog up the road infront, ringing their bells to get your attention. The church is a bit offer sanctuary from the tourist tat.

“Stunning Architecture”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Speechless. Impressed and stunned with the architecture. Make a round turn and feel that you're in those days back to 18 centuries

“The Christ Church”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

is a must to see. The Square is too crowded with stalls and
Trishas with loud music. The place should be more quite.

“wonderful architecture, beautifully preserved”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

The church is beautifully kept, with excellent records detailing the history of the building and the artifacts. Originally built by the Dutch, it was later used by the English when they took over Melaka and although they used some of the smaller items for other purposes, the important features like the pulpit have been maintained.

“Nice quiet place”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

a small quiet place with rich history. There is a stall set up to sell some souvenirs at very competitive and affordable price in which the proceeds goes to the funding of the church.
