Malacca (also spelled Melaka) is the capital of the coastal state of Malacca. Its center, Jonker Street, Chinatown’s main thoroughfare, is known for antique shops and its night market. The 17th-century Chinese Cheng Hoon Teng temple has ornate decorations and multiple prayer halls. A green, 3-tiered roof tops the 18th-century, Javanese-influenced Kampung Kling Mosque. A unique experience with a rich historical and cultural background from previous Portuguese, Dutch and British rule.
