Visit the Stadthuys, built by the Dutch as the official residence of the Dutch governors before coming to the Christ Church, completed in 1753 with its bright red structure. We then ascend up St Paul's Hill to visit the St Paul’s Church where St Francis Xavier was temporarily buried before his body was moved to Goa, India. As we descend, we shall pass by the Melaka Sultanate Palace which is a wooden replica of the 15th century Malay Sultanate palace and Porta de Santiago which is part of the fortress of Fortaleza de Melaka built by the Portuguese. From Porta de Santiago, we take a trishaw ride passing by old Dutch buildings, the Sri PoyyathaVinayagar Moorthi Temple, one of the first Hindu temples in Malaysia, Kampong Kling Mosque, which has a three-tier roof instead of the conventional dome, and a photo stop at the oldest functioning Chinese temple in Malaysia –Cheng Hoon Teng Temple.
