This is right off the main thoroughfare with Dutch Square et al. I like the fact that it's rough. I certainly get the feeling of antiquity more purely from a setting like this. I lingered awhile. I could sense the tremendous sense of sacrifice and...More

Its marked as Heritage Site but yet its poorly maintained. The grass was not mowed. Need to go at least in a pair because its isolated though by the roadside and lonely

It maybe boring for some people but I found it interesting to visit the graveyards. It is a nice experience to discover the history of Melacca. On the other hand, the graveyards is a nice place for photo taking.

As with many of the sites in Malacca, you don't really visit this one on its own. It's a piece of jigsaw that you should see in perspective of everything else. Do it as part of the historical trail by all means. Don't come here...More

This is actually called the Dutch Graveyard but there are 33 British graves here comparing to only 5 Dutch ones. The graveyard was first used in the last quarter of the 17th century. The last person buried here was in 1838.
