The architecture is classic colonial Dutch and the bricks were imported all the way from the Netherlands -- no easy task in the 1740s.

Originally a Dutch Reformed Church, when the British took over Melaka they converted it to an Anglican church and it remains so through till today.

You can go inside when there isn't a prayer service (usually on Sundays), but photography is only allowed of the exterior.

Free admission.
