Malacca was founded by an exiled prince from Sumatra named Parameswara. Merchants from China, India, South America and Arab countries were all making port-of-call in this prosperous centre where silk, gold, tea, spice, opium, tobacco and countless items changed hands.
Once one of the busiest trading ports and spice routes in the world, the city of Malacca now presents a rich mix of culture developed over centuries. Spend a relaxing day absorbing the atmosphere of once majestic forts, busy market places, a divine temple, and local Chinese-Malay cuisine.
History of Malacca began in 1400 with the arrival of Parameswara, an exiled Hindu Prince from the Kingdom of Sri Vijaya in Sumatra. He assumed the title of Raja Iskandar when he embraced Islam and became the first ruler of this new kingdom which marked the early beginnings of the Sultanate of Melaka.
