A catholic church built by a French priest on the site of a Portuguese church in the state of Malacca in Malaysia. Impressive, awesome structure. I recommend viewing it at night when its facade is subtly illuminated in a glow of faint blue.

A magnificient architecture and stands up beautifully with neon lights effect at night. A view of the St Francis Xavier Church from the river side is just fabulous. Picturesque and beautiful architecture heritage of Melaka.

It's our family pit stop whenever we drove to Melaka. Love the design of the church. Remember to say a little prayer and make an offering.
