Christ Church, Melaka

(650+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Pink, or you may say red. I feel full of pink around here and this church give a impression of stubborness or obstinacíon. Simple but looks so strong.
  • The church build by the Dutch. Most of the equipment are very old. There is an old rustic charm in this church.
  • This red church is easy to spot but you have to walk inside as well to check out the decorations and statues.
  • This is a 18th century church in melaka.
  • Nice square. I recommended this place!
