The Malacca`
Malacca was founded by a fleeing prince from Sumatra in 14th century, it developed into a major trading port for ships from India and China. As the Melaka Sultanate flourished, the Portuguese conquered Malacca in 1511. Later the Dutch took over in 1641 until much later the British empire ruled Malacca. The state finally obtained independence with the then "Malaya states" in 1957. Today, one will find many remnants of the glorious past dated back more than 500 years ago.

St. Paul's Church

On top of St. Paul's Hill is the St. Paul's Church, once the prayer house of the Portuguese Catholics, then turned into burial ground for their noble dead by the Dutch. The tombstones have Latin and Portuguese inscriptions on them. St. Francis Xavier was buried here in 1553 before his body was moved to Goa in India

In 1952, a statue of St. Francis Xavier was built to commemorate the passing of the saint. Originally, the statue was completely constructed with the right arm in place. However, on the morning after the consecration ceremony, a large casuarina tree fell on it and broke off the right arm, resulted in a statue with missing arm until today.


There Were Many Ancient Funerary Slabs Which Mostly Written In Dutch Inside The Church




I Think This Was To Support From The Old Building.

A'Famosa From St. Paul's Church


The A’Famosa

A’Famosa is part of a fortress built encircling the base of St. Paul's hill by the Portuguese in 1511. The gate is called Porta de Santiago. There were the governor's palace, bishop's palace, state halls, five churches and two hospitals inside A'Famosa. There was severe destruction during the Dutch invasion in 1641. In 1808, the British set to tear down the fortifications. Unfortunately, the weapons used at that time were not powerful enough to destroy the fifteen-feet-thick of A'Famosa. At the same time, Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore stepped in to prevent the complete destruction. What is left and restored is the entrance walls.
