To reach the church on top of the hill you must be ready for a few stairs, not a ridiculous amount but enough to feel the sweat, so comfortable footwear is beneficial. On top of the hill stands the oldest church building in Malaysia and...More

My first visit to St Paul's Church on the St Paul Hill was when I a little kid. Maybe pre-school. Plus few visits every decade or so. One thing that remains constant is the goosebumps that the ruins give me. This is a perfect setting...More

St Peter's Church is the oldest church in Malaysia which has recently been refurbished, so it now has air-conditioning and is much more comfortable to pray in!

The church is roofless so I don’t recommend going when it’s raining . It’s an easy walk up and the church takes a max of 20mins to visit. The view up there is splendid !

We paid a brief visit here on a tour of Melaka. It is dedicated to St Peter and the door handles are huge keys! There was a gentleman outside whom escorted us in and gave us a brief history of the church
