Christ Church, Melaka

(3.2/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
The oldest functioning Protestant church in Malaysia, Christ Church also represents a well-preserved example of Dutch colonial architecture. The building's facade features a large white cross and the words "Christ Church Malaka" emblazoned across it in white. Walk inside this 18th-century shrine to see its simple rectangular interior with 200-year-old pews. Look up at the ceiling rising 12 m (40 ft) above you, spanned by sturdy wooden beams cut from a single tree. The tombstones incorporated into the floor belong to Portuguese and Armenian Catholics, moved there from a nearby church during the Dutch occupation.

  • A church from Dutch Reform to Anglican. Old building but well maintained. Kudos to the volunteers. A must see historic building

  • It was built as a Malacca occupied 100 anniversary. Netherlands architectural shapes and colours are matched by wonder. Fuzhou Museum Netherlands Plaza and clock tower in the same color and sense of unity and form a nice corner lot.
