A walking tour through Melaka's tumultuous history: beginning with the Peranakans of Chinatown, proceeding to the colonial experience via Christ Church, Stadthuys, and the St. Paul historical complex, concluding at the Independence Memorial where independence was declared from British rule.

First Stop: Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock (Formerly Heeren Street)
The narrow street known as Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock may seem a little run down now, but in colonial times

Next Stop: Cheng Hoon Teng Temple
At the end of Jl Tokong, you'll find Cheng Hoon Teng (Temple of Clear Clouds), one of the oldest and finest temples in Malaysia. The Temple was founded in the mid-1600s by the kapitan, or headman, of the Chinese community at the time, Tay Kie Ki. The Dutch appointed local headmen to oversee the affairs of their respective communities. Tay Kie Ki had craftsmen from Fujian and Guangdong build a graceful temple that also served as an administrative center for the local Chinese community.

Next Stop: St. Paul's Church
St. Paul's Hill (formerly Malacca Hill) behind the Stadthuys is home to one of the last remaining Portuguese structures on Melaka: St. Paul's Church. This church is only a ruin, constructed in the 1520s as an act of gratitude by a merchant who had survived an ocean storm.

Next Stop: Malacca Sultanate Palace
The Malacca Sultanate Palace is a replica of the structure built by the extinct sultanate of Malacca, the rulers of the city before the arrival of the Portuguese in the 1500s. The plans were derived from the Malay Annals' account of Sultan Mansur Shah's palace, which housed the nobleman who ruled Melaka from 1456 to 1477.

Last Stop: Proclamation of Independence Memorial
Before independence, this building was known as the Melaka Club, a British building constructed in 1912. Today, this building stands as a silent witness to Malaysia's history. The building now commemorates the moment when, just across the road, Malaysia's first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman proclaimed the country's independence to thousands of cheering Malaysians at Warriors' Field (Padang Pahlawan) in 1957.
