Malacca River | Malaysia

The Malacca River flows through the middle of Malacca Town in the Malaysian state of Malacca. The river has been a vital trade route, and crucial to the economic development of Malacca.


It was near the mouth of this river that the Hindu prince Parameswara of Sumatra settled and established his kingdom at the beginning of the 15th century.
