Christ Church

During their brief stay in Malacca, the Dutch built the Stadhuis [City Hall] and the Christ Church at the Dutch Square. Before this, the St. Paul's Church, built by the Portugese, was widely used. The Malaysian flag seen here is on closer to the Stadhuis [on my right].

 

Wishing all fellow photographers at SC all the very best for the coming year. Perhaps our paths may cross in the coming days?

I wonder if this is something like the original colour of the building, Ayush?
Ayush Basu: Not too sure on that. But with this area being declared a UNESCO world heritage site, a lot of sprucing up must have done, including perhaps some exterior touch up[?]

I like the colour of the church. It looks in very condition for its age.
Thanks Ayush and likewise, a bold and colourful start to the year!
The colonial powers, bring religion to the natives and rob them blind, the Portuguese in particular had a reputation for ruthlessness.
Best wishes to you too for the new year Ayush

Usually a building with the name of Christ Church looks more like a cathedral than a pastoral gathering point. I find it interesting from that perspective.
