Harmonious Religions

It is a common scene in Malaysia where one could see different kind of worshiping venues on the same neighbourhood.

There were plenty of old churches in Melaka. This was my first time walking into St. Peter Church. I have been passingĀ  by this church everytime I enter into Melaka town, but never got the chance to pay a visit to this landmark.

The church was built in 1710, and due to its location, St Peter Churcse was not as popular as the Christ Church at Dutch Square.

Besides the famous Cheng Hoon Teng temple, Melaka has many other smaller temples that visited by the locals.

The muslim mosques has unique architecture in Melaka. One of the good example is Masjid Kampung Kling. Visitor can walk in and discover influence from Hindu, Bhuddist, and also the colonial English and Dutch elements.

Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, Masjid Kampung Kling and Sri Poyyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple are situated on the same street, that says it all about religions in Malaysia.
