Photographer's Note

The strawberry-coloured Christ Church was built during the Dutch occupation, began construction in 1741 and completed in 1753. The Christ Church is recognized as the oldest functioning Protestant church in Malaysia. Yes, it is still being used today!

During the age of British occupation, the Christ Church was once converted for Anglican use.

The Christ Church is featuring amazing Dutch-flavored architectural design. Each of the huge roof beams in the nave was carved from a single tree trunk and constructed without joints. Besides, the handmade pews and windows are original, dated back 200 years. Until today, the Christ Church is solidly maintained as undamaged, and the ceiling rafters are still remaining strong as when it was first built.
