St. Peter's Church, Melaka

3.8
#6 of 15 in Historic Sites in Melaka
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Visit St. Peter's Church to discover the oldest functioning Roman Catholic Church in Malaysia, completed more than 300 years ago. Constructed by the early Portuguese colonists in the first decade of the 18th century, the simple yet elegant structure features a combination of Eastern and Western architectural styles. One of the building's bells dates back to 1608 and was brought here from an older Dutch church. Stop by to admire the largely unadorned interior, or stand in front and take a few photos of this historically significant shrine.

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.

  • A simple and humble church by structure and design.Attended mass and organized CST programmes here during my student days.
  • The oldest catholic church in Melaka. The oldest church would be Christ Church. The church building itself looks moderate and modest. Not too many intricate sculptures or stained glass. Parking can be done within the church grounds.
  • At St. Peter's Church, barring a solemn atmosphere and with faith to the holy night, I watched a reflection of the past. https://youtu.be/JfIFIGnK9xM
