The Queen Victoria's Fountain is another colonial relic which can be seen in the Dutch Square in the city center of Malacca. Built in 1904, in celebration of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee and made of British marble, it is an interesting structure to see when exploring Malacca.

While not an elegant masterpiece compared to many statues and fountains you may have seen in Europe, it remains somewhat interesting as there are not many old European fountains to be found in SE Asia. At night the fountain benefits from the floodlighting of the square, meaning you can take decent pictures at that time.

Overall, not a major attraction, just one more interesting thing to find when visiting Malacca.

This fountain is in the middle of the Dutch red square. It is easy to find it. It seems that English took over the Dutch in this area. In that fountain you will find the date when that fountain was dedicated to the Queen.

Pretty fountain directly in the center of the Dutch Square area. Very busy place for posing for photographs. Nothing special but take a moment to check it out if you're there.

Kids love water and this attracts them like a magnet the moment we arrives. It was like a normal fountain, nothing much except it provides a moment of cooling off on a hot sunny day. Structually, it was a nice and well constructed figure....and still standing strong till today :)

Close by Red Square and offering a calming tranquil water feature to the area. Take the time to sit and watch the scenery of the area.
