Melaka (formerly Malacca)<Previous Page
Malacca (Malay: Melaka) is a small state in southern part of the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is located between Johor and Negeri Sembilan states. Melaka was Malaysia's first city. It was built on the trading empires of spices and textiles, and has a history soaked in the blood of battles as rival colonial powers challenged each other to take hold of the port. In its glorious 15-century heyday, it was the most vital port in Southeast Asia, with as many as 2,000 ships docked there. Today, among the high-rise buildings, the colonial past remains in the architecture and monuments.
