    HistoricalThe Stadthuys

    The legacy of the Dutch is still very

    much alive and felt in Melaka in a form

    of a building called the Stadthuys.

    It was the oi cial residence of the

    Dutch Governor, built in 1650, built in

    4 stories on a terrace of St. Pauls hill

    covering 49,200 sq. feet in area. It had

    been the Governors residence until as

    early as the 18th century. It also was

    the Dutch Administrative Centre until

    1824. Why, even the British made this

    building their administrative centre

    too. The Stadthuys continued to be

    the State Governing Centre until the

    end of 1979. The original colour of this

    building was white. It was changed to

    red during the 1820s and then came

    to be known as The Red Building to

    Porta de Santiago

    Porta de Santiago, which means The Famous, is a

    Portuguese fortress located in Melaka. This is the

    best evidence of Portuguese occupation hundreds

    of years ago. Located at the foot of St. Pauls Hill,

    was built in 1512 under the command of Alfonso

    de Albuquerque. Its signii cance started to fade

    when the British settled here in the early 19th

    century. The British had almost destroyed the

    whole complex when Sir Stamford Ra es arrived

    in 1808. He was able to stop the destruction, but

    unfortunately what is left until today is nothing

    more than a gateway called Porta de Santiago.

    Bukit Cina is situated southeast of Melaka

    Town, about 148 metres above sea

    level and covers an area of 42 hectares.

    There are more than 12,500 graves on

    Bukit China including approximately 20

    Muslim tombs. Bukit Cina is also believed

    to be the oldest and largest traditional

    Chinese cemetery outside China. The

    weather had taken a heavy toll on the

    tomb, and in 1933 Cheng Hoon Teng

    Temple had undertaken to repair it. A

    stone inscription was erected to mark

    it. The tomb was again restored in 2001.

    This fort was built by the Portuguese between

    year 1512 to 1550. However in late 1660 to 1670,

    a structure that is named Middlesburg was

    added by the Dutch. Up to today, the Heritage

    Department of Melaka still conducts research on

    this fort. Several things have been discovered,

    such as the six bastions and a huge sewerage pipe

    dated 1895. Other than reconstructing the fort,

    the department makes sure that the structures

    within the fort are restored and preserved.

    Malaysia took the i rst step into heavy industry especially in the manufacture

    of commercial vehicles with the establishment of HICOM (Heavy Industries

    Corporation of Malaysia) in 1980 and PROTON (the National Automobile Industry)

    in 1983. Subsequent to that, PERODUA (the second National Automobile Industry)

    was formed in 1993, and this was followed by MODENAS (National Motor-cycles

    and Engines) in 1995. The Malaysian Motor Industry has since developed by leaps

    and bounds. As an adjunct to the development of the motor industry, YAB Datuk

    Seri Haji Mohd Ali bin Mohd Rustam, the Chief Minister of Melaka, initiated the

    Autocity Site which was oi cially declared open 2 January, 2010. He also proposed

    that the Melaka Museums Corporation to establish a Melaka Transportation

    Museum in this Autocity to exhibit cars, motorcycles, bicycles and other such

    means of transportation, each with its own antique and unique features.

    Melaka Sultanate Palace Museum

    The Melaka Sultanate Palace is a replica of a

    Sultans palace during the era of the Melaka

    Sultanate. This replica was built from records

    obtained from the Malay Annals depicting

    the unique architecture of a palace during the

    ruling era of Sultan Mansur Shah. Apart from

    the unique building design and ornate wood

    carvings, visitors will also be able to obtain

    insights on the institution of the Melaka Malay

    Sultanate and the opportunity to experience

    a true palace atmosphere via dioramas of a

    Royal Dias, a visiting trade delegation, diorama

    of the feud between Hang Tuah and Hang

    Jebat, as well as the Royal Bedroom. There

    are also scale models of other Malay palaces

    and a collection of traditional costumes,

    accessories, weapons, and earthenware.

    The Kings Well is also known as the Hang Li Poh Well. Sultan Mansur Shah (1458-

    1477) ordered the well to be dug for the exclusive use of his wife, Hang Li Poh,

    who came from China. The water

    was used for their daily needs and

    surprisingly, the never dried up, even

    in the severest droughts. According

    to folklore, whosoever drinks from

    the well will return to Melaka.

    In 1511, Johor warriors poisoned

    the well, killing many Portuguese

    who drank the water in 1606, the

    Dutch committed the same act and

    the Acehnese followed suit between

    1628 and 1629. Their intentions

    were to covertly kill of their

    enemies. When the Dutch realized

    the importance of the well, they build a

    wall, resembling a small fort; complete

    with cannons and a guard-house to

    safe-guard it. However, during the

    British occupation, the well fell into

    disuse and the guard-house became


    Hang Tuah Well

    Hang Tuah himself was said to have

    dug this well and it has never dried-

    up even in the most severe droughts.

    Water from this well is said to be

    sacred and has healing properties.

    Local believe that Hang Tuahs soul

    which takes on the apparition of a

    white crocodile dwells in this well. The

    presence of this well also gives rise to

    the notion that Hang Tuah was from

    Duyong. The locals however dispute

    the belief and said that he was from

    Duyong, in East Sumatera where

    a similar well also exists. The Hang

    Tuah Well was gazetted as an old

    monument and heritage site under

    National Heritage Act 2005.

    Hang Jebat Mausoleum

    the rule of Sultan Mansor Shah (1456-1477 A.D), there lived young men who grew

    up together. Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat, Hang Kasturi, Hang Lekir and Hang Lekiu

    were inseparable and became known as the Five Companions in the epic Hikayat

    Hang Tuah. Sultan Mansor Shah was so impressed with the skills of the i ve that he

    immediately gave them positions at his court. and Hang Tuah became his favourite.

    Hang Jebat, who was beside himself with grief, could not understand why the

    Sultan summarily ordered his brothers execution without i rst giving him a chance

    a prove his innocent. Disillusioned and broken-hearted, Hang Jebat ran amok and

    sought revenge, killing everyone that

    tried to protect the Sultan. The battle was

    said to last for three days until Hang Jebat

    was stabbed and died in his friends arms.

    Hang Tuah is synonym to Melaka and he is

    well known for his bravery and loyalty to the

    Sultan. His outstanding performance as a

    military oi cer made him a legend that has

    graced many in the history of Melaka. His

    valiant act caught the Sultans attention and

    he was called to the palace and conferred a

    knighthood the youngest ever to be knighted.

    The Dutch Graveyard

    This graveyard was irst used at the last

    quarter of the 17th Century. Presently, 5

    Dutch and 33 British graves are sited within

    its compound. This cemetery was used in

    two stages that is between 1670-1682 and

    later between 1818-1838. When the British

    took over Melaka in 1795, they initially used

    st pauls hills as their burial ground and only

    in 1818 they did they began to make use of

    this cemetery. The irst British person to be

    buried here was captain John Kidd, captain

    of the ship while the last British person to

    be buried was the wife of a British army

    oicer 1838. Most of the British buried here

    were army or naval personnel. A number

    of wives of army oicers were also buried

    here. The grave that attracts the attention

    of the most visitors is the one that has a tall

    column on it in which two army oicers,

    who were killed during the war between

    the British and Naning in the interior of

    Melaka in 1831, were buried. This graveyard

    has been gazette as national monument

    The Queen Victoria Fountain was built

    in 1901 by the British to commemorate

    Her Majestys Diamond Jubilee. It

    is probably one of the last traces of

    the British colonial era in Malaysia

    which symbolizes the glorious days

    of the British colonization in Malaysia

    in the yesteryears. Made of English

    marble, the Queen Victorias Fountain

    is still functioning well today, and

    is considered as one of the most

    frequently photographed landmarks

    in Melaka.

    Christ Church

    When the Dutch took over Melaka from the hand of the Portuguese, they built

    the Christ Church as a place of worship. This Church, completed in 1753, is the

    oldest functioning Protestant church in

    Malaysia and has gone through several

    stages of change under the domination

    of dif erent colonials. The church

    is painted in red which remained

    the hallmark of Melakas Dutch-era

    buildings. Surrounded by beautiful

    landscape, will probably feel like

    visiting a vintage church somewhere

    in Europe. Christ Church Melaka now

    belongs to the Anglican Church, which

    Christ Church handed to British and

    consecrated to use as Anglican service

    from 1838 until today.

    oldest church in Melaka. When the

    the Portuguese chapel, repaired

    and transformed it into a Dutch

    The establishing of UMNO Museum

    in Melaka is a rational step in the

    history of the Malays since everything

    signii cant within its scope originated

    from there. The Melaka Empire is

    as the catalyst and core of Malay

    civilization in Malaysia. It has been a

    model for the past and present Malay

    state and society in the aspect of

    establishing the system of the country,

    and an elves place and a cave.

    The beaches on the island are very clean,

    attractive and the sea is calm, inviting and

    suitable for swimming. Since the island is also

    a Muslim pilgrimage site this is not a place for

    lying on the beach in a bikini, but swimming

    wearing a t-shirt and shorts (i.e. Malaysian

    style) is acceptable.

    Located along Jalan Tukang Mas or Jalan

    Harmoni, the mosque was built by Che

    Mat Bin Kecut in 1748 on a part of land

    that belonged to Dato Shamsuddin bin

    Dato Aroon. Rumours say that it was

    constructed because the land where

    Kampung Hulu Mosque was standing

    had to be auctioned of by Hajah Aminah

    Shamsuddin who inherited it, though the

    process was stopped on time. Since these

    two mosques are close to each other, Friday

    prayers for Muslims have to be performed

    in turns. Being on the same road of Cheng

    Hoon Teng Temple for the Chinese and Sri

    Poyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple for the

    Indians, Kampung Kling Mosque provides

    harmony for these races until now.

    Jalan Kampung Hulu, 75200 Melaka.

    This building was built by Dato Shamsuddin

    not very far from Tengkera Mosque, believed to

    be built in 1728, while some say it was actually

    built in 1720. The style of this mosque follows

    the same pattern of other mosques of its age,

    by keeping the original wooden structure even

    though it has been renovated several times.

    This mosque is claimed to make anyone feel

    at peace while performing their prayers in it,

    thus it is considered unique compared to the

    newer mosques. Some parts of this building

    have Chinese writings on them because Dato

    Shamsuddins father, Dato Aroon or Haron was

    a man from China who embraced Islam.

    This mosque is located along

    JalanTengkera (Tranquerah) and was

    constructed in 1728. Its roof was made

    to be identical to Melaka traditional

    architectural style, with a 50-feet

    pagoda-shaped tower built right on

    its side. The compound is i lled with

    hundreds of old graves including the

    one of the late Sultan Hussein Shah

    Johor of Singapore that passed on in

    1835. It was once recognized as State

    Mosque until Al-Azim Mosque took

    over in 1993. However, it is still the i rst

    mosque gazetted as heritage building.

    Portuguese Settlement

    This area was formed in 1931 with

    assistance from the British. After

    the Dutch defeated the Portuguese

    with help from Malays of Johor, the

    remaining Portuguese people that

    survived were allowed to stay in

    Melaka. They managed to live without

    relying on anybody for almost 300

    years until in 1931, the British colonial

    government gazetted an area by the

    sea at the end of JalanMerdeka as an

    exclusive place for the Portuguese that

    lived in Melaka. The area is in Ujung

    Pasir, and almost 2000 Portuguese

    descendants are living there today. They

    have Portuguese lifestyle, especially in

    art, food, clothes, speech, and culture.

    It can be hard to dif erentiate them

    from local Malays just from the looks,

    but they always keep their Portuguese

    last names such as Gomez, Rodriguez,

    DeSilva, and Lazarus.

    pay a visit to their rested family members and

    relatives at the Chinese cemetery on the same

    hill. Legend says that when Admiral Cheng Ho

    was on his way to Melaka, his ship had a crack

    from the storms and the leakage caused the ship

    to start sinking. The people who sailed on the ship

    had given all their hopes up and just called God

    for help. All of a sudden, a i sh known as Sam Po

    jumped onto the ship and covered the crack with

    its body, preventing the ship from leaking much

    further. This is how the temple got its name.

    Sri Poyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple

    Not long after the Dutch announced

    their permission for the people of

    Melaka to have their places of worship,

    the Indians began building the i rst

    Hindu temple in 1781. Located along

    Jalan Tukang Mas, this temple is unlike

    any other temples in Malaysia. Other

    than having simple architecture, it also

    has very few decorative statues of Hindu

    Gods and Goddesses. One thing that

    makes this temple very special is the

    fact that it was built with the same tiles

    of the oor of Kampung Kling Mosque,

    which is just a few steps away. The

    temple name is formed from the words

    Sri as an introduction, Poyatha as a

    respectful title, and Vinayagar Moorthi

    as the name of a Hindu God.

    Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum

    The Peranakan community began from as early

    as the 16th century when migrants came to the

    shores of Malaya and intermarried with the locals.

    Nyonyas. The Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum was

    once home to a Peranakan-Chinese Baba planter

    named Chan Cheng Siew who lived in Melaka in

    the 1900s. A family-run private museum, the house

    is now open as a living museum and rumah abu
