“A simple historical well”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

It's just like an ordinary well to an average person but to a historian, this well has its history. It's is said that this well never dries up even during the drought season. So it was the source of water for the folks asround the area during the old days.
Now, it is not properly maintained and the water is not that clean. It has now become a wishing well. I hope those wishes come true for those who believe in what they wish for.

“A Historical Site - commemorating the early Chinese migrants”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

It's just a well - with some history.
Nothing to see, nothing else to do.
Some visitors tend to make the well, as if it is a wishing well and probably there might be over a ton of coins lying at the bottom of it by now.

“Historical well”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Just a historical well. Not a good view point. Nothing special. One of the places where tour guides will bring.

“Simply nothing...”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

This well was located at a temple and in fact, it is a boring place to visit. Although it is a part of Melaka historic that mark the arrival of Chinese from China thru a royal marriage between Puteri Hang Li Poh and Melaka Sultan, it has only a well to see. The place is poorly managed. If can, you may avoid this place.
