Today’s Travel Photo Thursday is a shot of Saint Francis Xavier Church in downtown Malacca. The Gothic style church was built by Catholic French priest Rev. Farve. The church was dedicated to Saint Francis Xavier, known for his missionary work in SEA during the 16th century. He was commonly known as “The apostle of the East”.

The church, or at least the steeples, can be easily seen from various vantage points throughout the old city. On my first night here I probably would never have found my way back to my home stay if it hadn’t been for those trusty steeples!

The church is open to the public, and being free to enter, is a great place for a budget traveler to spend a few minutes admiring the stained glass windows, and soaking up a bit of history.
