Melaka
from the Top

was published in commemoration of historic Melaka's inscription by the World Heritage Committee on 8 July 2008 as part of an addition of 19 cultural sites and 8 natural sites to UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

It is a pictorial that contains a huge number of photographs of the historic city of Melaka and its surroundings.

This book attempts to trace back and compare the geological and demographical transformation and development of the town of Melaka and its surroundings over the centuries, with focus on its expansion particularly within the last 40 years.

Historic Melaka has changed dramatically over the 600 years of its history. However, it was only with the reclamation of its coast and expansion of the town in the last few decades that has truly changed the town.

From its once ‘sleepy hollow’ little backwater town, Melaka is now being transformed into a growing metropolis. This book records those changes and captures the images of how Melaka was then and is now, from eye level and from the top, as it continues to develop and change.

This book was made possible through a collaboration of people from far and near, and from their private collection of photographs. Many of the old maps, photos and images in this book are of great historical importance for Melaka – the place where it all began in Malaysia.

Rediscover Melaka and see it as you have never seen it before!
