" A Famosa "

Assalamualaikum everyone.. Well, in this entry I will focus on Malacca as me myself attracted on Malacca because for me, there's a lot of interesting places in there.
As for your information, Malacca is the most historical place in Malaysia as this is the birth place for all Malaysian. At the beginning, before the arrival of the first Sultan, Malacca was a fishing village who Malays are the local citizen in there. One of the most historical places in Malacca is ''A Famosa". It was built in 1511 once Portuguese fleet arrived under the command of Afonso de Albuquerque.
Years ago during the Portuguese invasion, A Famosa was built as a Portuguese fortress. But now, it is as a attraction place that must to be visited in Malacca because it will give the view to the visitors although there's only a small gate house, the only remaining part of the fortress still standing.
As for me, it is an interesting place to be visited because at least we can know part of the history in order to know our own country well.

In other entry, I will give other interesting places to be visited in Malacca. Got to go...:)
