River Fort, Malacca, Malaysia

By on June 13, 2015 in Malaysia

Malacca, Malaysia, boasts some of the oldest surviving European architectural remains in south east Asia, and one example of this is the A Famosa, which was built by the Portuguese when they ruled Malacca from 1511 to 1641.

Down by the river is a fort, which, as far as I can tell, a reconstruction of how the fort my have originally looked as built by the Portuguese and then altered by the Dutch.

The stone used to construct the fort is very odd. It was incredibly hard, and at the same time looked fragile as it was full of holes.

Unless I missed it I could not find any notes or information nearby that explained what I was looking at!
