You can't miss the Queen Victoria's fountain as it's situated in the middle of Dutch Square. A throwback to the days of Empire but it has been very well preserved and provides a good photo opportunity.
The inscription reads " Victoria Regina 1837- 1901. Erected by the people of Malacca in memory of a great Queen 1904."
Get there early unless you want to queue to photograph it!

Britain's longest reigning monarch's commemorative tribute is indeed a sight to behold. Impresive, majestic, historical. The prized backdrop for many pictures.

A throw back to the Pommies' glory days of Empire & Crown when colonies, incuding those in the Straits Settlements, were thought to be forever Engand's.

Fortunately, the elegant, ornamentally decorated 100 yr old fountain is preserved and maintained, thrilling Malaccans and visitors now & for generations to come.

Very nice old fountain which is just in the middle of the Dutch Square. A lot of people come here and this is just beside the Christ Church and Old Clock.

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.
