Bukit Cina Hill

Tourism Melaka

Bukit Cina was the official settlemet of the Chinese entourage who arrived in Melaka with Princess Hang Li Poh. She was sent by the Chinese Emperor to marry the Sultan of Melaka. The entourage stayed on this settlement until the Portuguese colonisation in 1511. Today Bukit Cina is the largest Chinese cemetary outside China and many of the graves there date back to the Ming Dynasty. It is located at Jalan Puteri Hang Li Poh.

Happy Regards,
