Day 4: Heritage Tour in Malacca (Christ Church Melaka)

After a restful night and hearty breakfast, we bade farewell to Hatten Hotel to begin our heritage tour of Malacca!

Some shots of our breakfast!

As we approached the iconic Christ Church, we were greeted by its unique red colored facade.

Christ Church was built by the Dutch when they took possession of Malacca from the Portuguese, it's one of Malacca’s most defining structures. Situated along Jalan Gereja (also known as Church Street) it is an instantly recognizable brick-red building with a huge white cross at the top. 

Sitting opposite the Stadhuys, Christ Church was built in 1753 to celebrate a century of Dutch occupation. The interior of the cathedral has 200 year-old handmade pews, decorative fanlights and plaques that honour Dutch soldiers and locals.

Stay tuned for more updates!
