  • Gets crowded on weekend but the view from the top was nice and the cooling sea breeze do offer you a bit of comfort from the malacca heat.
  • A short easy walk up to a historic site. The partially restored derelict church is well worth visiting. The site appears to be well maintained, surprisingly lacking hawkers. The hill location offers a view of the old town and photo opportunities.
  • Wow, an amazing old church atop the hill, historic and well cared for. An easy walk to get to, wonderful views, and the park it resides in was lovely. Very interesting, and you'll get lots of good photos.
  • Nice place as it is a historical building. It is a church built by the british during the British colonial periods...
  • Church is not so impressive but the view over the city is very nice.
