Photo of the Day – The Dutch Square

The Dutch Square can be found in Melaka and is named as such due to the influence of the Dutch when they colonized the place in the 1700s. Christ Church, as seen on this photo, is the oldest functioning Protestant church in Malaysia and it is located at the center of the square. The church and the surrounding buildings has the distinctive color scheme of the Dutch era and is matched with the brick stones covering the square.
