Historical Monument

At a time even before Kuala Lumpur was discovered, Melaka held the reputation of one of the world’s most important ports which connected Portugal and China. Prior to the Portuguese invading Melaka, it was one of the strongest Sultanate since it was established between 1400-1403. This makes Melaka historically rich. Let’s take a look at some of the historical sites.

Hang Jebat Mausoleum

When Hang Tuah was told to be executed, Hang Jebat was heartbroken and ran amok in the palace. He threatened everyone who tried to defend Sultan Mansor Shah who ordered the execution. No one realised that Tun Perak had actually concealed HangTuah.

This is the traditional tomb of Hang Kasturi, a high-ranking Malay warrior under Sultan Mansor Shah's rule (r. 1456-77). He is one of the five sworn-brothers whose life was entangled with Hang Jebat

Melaka will not be complete without getting to know and honour one of the legendary heroes of Melaka and, in fact, one of Malaysia's all-time heroes – Hang Tuah. The architecture of the Hang Tuah Mausoleum represents the elements of South India.

Kota A’ Famosa

Also known as Porta de Santiago which means The Famous; Kota A’ Famosa is a Portuguese fortress located in the town of Melaka. This is the best proof of Portuguese occupation hundreds of years ago.
