A little climb above the Melaka River is the old St. Paul's Church. It is just the shell of the old chapel, but the old tomb covers/gravestones are worth the visit. Also a view from what was the top of the old Fort Melaka.

We enjoyed the walk up the hill and around the church and graveyard. The wording on all of the headstones is particularly interesting with lots of poetic and descriptive ways of meeting your maker!

I loved this little stop. Great old structure. The foundation of Malacca today. Met some good people here. I'd recommend it.

Aithough you have to climb up to reach the top of St Paul Hill, the view is spectacular as you are able to see part of Straits of Melaka and the city. There are hstorical artifects and old tombs inside the walls of the church which provide historical information. There are also people selling souvenier and playting music

We again went to maleka Malaysia over the Chinese New Year Period, walked through Jonkers St to St Paul's Church, hot and sweaty (so have water with you and be prepared for a good walk, if you are having trouble walking maybe not for you) lots of traffic and people as it was the New Year, Now as to the...

The walk up the hill is rewarded by an all round view of the city. The church is quite an atmospheric ruin

Walking along the road beside Stadthuys, you will be surprised by two things – numerous museums located on your left and colourful trishaw blasting music, carrying passengers passing by. As you make your way to St Paul Church located at the St Paul Hill, you may be taking a lot more time than you expected. Not because of the long... More

We arrived at the foot of St Paul"s hill from the maritime museum accross the street. The stairs to climb the top of the hill looks very steep. Instead of going up directly, we took the street walk to Stadhuys. Hopefully it would be less steep. But i think it was the same... My wife decided to stay at Stadhuys... More

St Pauls Hill and Church are worth visiting to see some of those buried Head Stones. If you are lucky enough to have a guide, you will learn a lot of interesting facts.
