The Bri­tish in­flu­ence

Woman's Era - - Short Story -

By 1824 Malacca had once again changed hands and was in the pos­ses­sion of the East In­dia Com­pany. Right in front of Christ Church stands the very el­e­gant Queen Vic­to­ria Foun­tain. The mar­ble foun­tain was built in 1904 to com­mem­o­rate the queen’s Di­a­mond Ju­bilee. It is one of the last sur­viv­ing ves­tiges of the Bri­tish rule in Malacca.

The area buzzes with tourists, flanked by Stadthuys on one side and Christ Church on the other, pro­vid­ing a cool respite from the heat of the sun. Tr­ishaws buzz around the area pro­vides colour and quaint­ness.
