It was our last day in Malacca before returning to Singapore. Our guides took us for a walk through the streets to visit places of worship of some of the different religions. It is great to see these temples and mosques next to one another, with people coming and going all day to pay their respects. It seems these people of different beliefs can live in harmony with one another.
Our group of villagers filling up the footpath.
A beautiful Chinese temple
I was amazed at the tolerance of the locals trying to do their prayers while tourists were mingling around them.
Down the road a bit further we were welcomed into a mosque.
And then a bit further on we entered an Indian Temple
The "priest" singing prayers. Then we waited for the bus to take us to a Malayan Village. Bill and Chiou See share a joke (our CEO who organised the trip)
The bus dropped us near the bridge which we crossed to enter the Historic Malayan Village.
The architecture is quite different from the surrounding modern towers.
One of the houses is now a museum.
The lady showing us around was 100 and she had been born in this house.
Then it was back in the bus for lunch in the Eurasian district where decedents from the Portuguese and other European occupiers of the land live. A large statue of Christ was visible in the square.
We had lunch in a Portuguese restaurant, once again another interesting and delicious meal.
