In the center of the city is Malacca's famous Dutch Square. It is also known as the Red Square because of the crimson colored old buildings that surrounds the area. To me the most dominant building is the Christ Church completed in 1753.
It was formerly the Dutch Reformed Church of Malacca, but is now an Anglican Church.
The pink bricks were brought from Holland and plastered with local red laterite.
It is the oldest surviving Dutch church building found outside the Netherlands.
It simply is gorgeous. I read that this is a popular place for photo shoot of newlyweds. Red brick building is the perfect backdrop for any kind of photo shoot. Plus red is considered lucky with Chinese, right.
