Hang Jebat Mausoleum

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.

It was only when the Sultan decided to forgive Hang Tuah that the secret was exposed. When Hang Tuah returned from the jungle, he was ordered to execute Hang Jebat. He was horrified at the idea of killing his sworn brother. He told him, however, that he had to kill him because the Sultan had given him a direct order. The battle was said to last for three days until Hang Jebat was stabbed and died in his friend’s arms. The tomb itself is Achinese in design and is of the sort typically used to mark the burial places of the high ministers or Sultans of the time, so it is likely that Hang Jebat was a real person buried here. The age of the grave is unidentified, but it definitely predates the Portuguese occupation of 1512.

Hang Kasturi Mausoleum

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.

Hang Kasturi is one of the five great warrior brothers, Hang Jebat, Hang Tuah, Hang Lekir and Hang Lekiu. The five brothers were great warriors during the reign of the Melaka Sultanate, particularly during the reign of Sultan Mansur Shah (1456-1477). Their bravery and power, and the wisdom of the Bendahara Tun Perak, enabled the Melaka Sultanate to extend the Melaka Empire as far as the Malay Archipelago, and thus the empire retained reverence among friends and foes.

Hang Tuah Mausoleum

Hang Tuah Mausoleum

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. Located at the foot of St. Paul's Hill, it was built in 1512 under the order of Alfonso de Albuquerque.

Hang Tuah is synonymous to Melaka and is famed for his courage and loyalty to the Sultan. His impressive performance as a military officer (admiral) has made him a legend that has graced the history of Melaka. His heroic act attracted the attention of the Sultan, and he was called to the palace and awarded a knighthood, the youngest ever to be knighted. The fort changed hands in 1641 when the Dutch effectively ousted the Portuguese from Melaka. The gate was renovated in 1670 by the Dutch, which explains the emblem "ANNO 1670" engraved on the arch of the gate. Above the arch is the bas-relief logo of the Dutch East India Company. The fortress changed hands again at the beginning of the 19th century when the Dutch handed it over to the British to avoid Melaka from falling into the wrong hands of Napoleon's expansionist France. The British, recognising that they'd have to return the fort to the Dutch at the end of the Napoleonic Wars, were determined to make the city as worthless as possible to the Dutch. They were preparing to evacuate the population and demolish the fort when Sir Stamford Raffles arrived in 1808. He was able to avoid the devastation, but sadly what's left until today is nothing more than a portal named Kota A'Famosa.

Bukit Cina Cemetery

Bukit Cina Cemetery

Bukit Cina is the largest Chinese cemetery outside of mainland China. Bukit Cina is located southeast of the town of Melaka, approximately 148 metres above sea level and covers an area of 42 hectares.

There are more than 12,500 graves throughout Bukit Cina, including about 20 Muslim graves. Graves found here date back to the late Ming dynasty (mid-17th century). The oldest grave discovered so far dates back to 1622, but sadly several tombs were exhumed during the British occupation of Malaysia. The weather had taken a heavy toll on the graves, and Cheng Hoon Teng Temple had begun to rebuild it in 1933. To mark it, a stone inscription was erected. The tomb was rebuilt again in 2001.

Admiral Cheng Ho Gallery

Admiral Cheng Ho Gallery

The museum building is believed to be built at the original site of the Guan Chang warehouse complex, built about 600 years ago by Zheng He, to temporarily store the goods he collected during his travels. The warehouse complex initially occupied 10 acres of lowland along the northern bank of the Melaka River. Five Ming-era wells were discovered during the construction of the museum.

The Queen Victoria Fountain was constructed in 1901 by the British to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty. It is possibly one of the last remnants of the British colonial period in Malaysia that symbolises the glory days of British colonialism in the past. Made of English marble, Queen Victoria's Fountain still works well today and is considered to be one of the most frequently photographed landmarks in Melaka.
