This is attraction reflects the true victorian architecture and is situated right in the heart of Melaka's tourist historical centre. It is basically a nice fountain with benches for people to sit under a huge tree. There are a lot of trishaws that you can take a ride on.

Located on Dutch square. You may sit around and enjoy to take picture or just look around. The fountain works very well and it is a sign of the Dutch been here. The water flows and you can throw away money to the water for good luck. Usually people visit at noon, but it is nice to visit at night... More

Seems like everybody congregates here after a tour of Melaka. Nice to sit under the trees for shade and a bit of cool. There's even a spray of cooling water if the breeze is blowing. The fountain is a nice example of Victorian architecture. The Christ Church is in the same vicinity.

This is a good place for tourists in Melaka because it gives them an opportunity to not only gain knowledge about the place's history but also to buy things from the street market behind the fountain, take good pictures with the fountain (and with a board next to the fountain that says 'I Love Melaka'), and also experience a rickshaw...

This is a lovely old fountain in the middle of the dutch quarter, right in front of the church. Provides a good backdrop for tourist photos ;)

Great spot for pictures but difficult to get a good one because there's so many people here, all trying to get a good pictures! This is tourist central, you can get the carriage rides here, 5-minute walk to a lot of the museums and historic areas in Melaka.

Located in the Dutch Square this water fountain is probably the best feature in the whole tourist attraction in the old part of Melaka. Popular with tourists for photos. The whole square is badly lit at night so there is no chance of a photo when it is not surrounded by a lot of tourists.
