  • A walk down memory lane of erstwhile melaka and their heritage. A fort, a church, a train bought from Kolkata and a few canons are on display in the premises.  more »
  • Has been given the name of Francis Xavier, but Xavier would not directly related. This church was built in 1894 by the relatively new. There are two towers is the feature. Only view of the outside doors are closed and the site could not.

  • I went from walking after seeing Xavier statue on the Hill of St. Paul was not allowed during the Malacca River Boardwalk. Walk the promenade is about 300 m away, walk if you go straight to a roundabout, so little spent much time. It was a beautiful white Church. Unfortunately we weren't able to Xavier of the second. Immediately preceded by the road.

  • One of the oldest catholic churches in town. This place is named after their patron saint St Francis Xavier. The church has 2 towers, both apparently holds 2 large brass bells, which cannot be seen from the outside. When you enter the church, you can see some adornment of stained glass. And if you notice properly the church grounds is shaped into a cross. There is a catholic gift store just in front of the church. It's a good place to visit.
  • Looks fabulous when walking on the road in front of it.
  • A nice and easily noticeable Catholic Church.
  • beautiful church in Melaka. It's on the left when you're on the bus
  • Old church at malaka
