Britain’s longest reigning monarch’s commemorative tribute is indeed a sight to behold; impressive, majestic, and historical. 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 in 1904”. Looking at this another colonial relic is like a throwback to the Pommies’ glory days of Empire and Crown when colonies, including those in the Straits Settlements, were thought to be forever England’s. It provides a good moment of cooling off on a hot sunny day. At night the fountain benefits from the floodlighting of the square, meaning you can take decent pictures at that time. So, get there early unless you want to queue to photograph it!
