“A rendesvous point to all tourist attractions in Malacca”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

During our first trip to Malacca, we noticed that the building is pretty much adjacent to all scenic spots of the city, around 10 -15 mins walk. The river, Sam poo kong house, and pretty much everything else. I'd recommend for anyone staritng their tour in Malacca to start from here.

“Indian-influence building”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

The body of St. Francis Xavier I believe was the one I saw in Goa (India) at the same church as this one in Melaka. If you like this sort of connections and history, pay a visit to this church can be a good experience. Have a quite moment inside the church.

“St. Francis Xavier - important historical figure, church closed both days we tried to visit”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

St. Francis Xavier is an important historical missionary figure who spent much of his live spreading the gospel and tending to the pour in South Asia, SE Asia and Japan. He made several stops in Melaka during the period of the Portuguese rule and was buried here for a time, at what was called St. Paul church on top of St. Paul church at that time.

This church is named after St. Francis Xavier which made it one of interest for us to visit during a recent trip to Melaka. Unfortunately, there was much construction taking place around the church and it was gated off. As such, it seems it may be under restoration or renovation at the time of our visit. We'll try again next time we pass through Melaka.

“The Multinations Church”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

It's wonderful to attend the Mandy Thursday in this Church. It's great to listen to the sermon in four languages, Malayan, English, Tamil, and Chinese. The songs are also sung in those languages. This is a multinations church. The important thing that you need to know, when you visit this church, pay attention to the altar. There is amural of St. Francis Xavier on it.

“Wont missed it!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

It's part of the square, if you do take a walk a little away. Its more well kept in the church and a beautiful feeling when sitting inside.
