Morten Village

The Morten Village (Malay: Kampung Morten) is a historical traditional Malay village in Melaka City, Melaka, Malaysia.[1][2]

Naming[edit]

The village is named after a British land revenue collector during the British Malaya, Frederick Joseph Morten.

History[edit]

The area used to be a quiet place during the 1960s and 1970s. The area was then evolved to become a tourist attraction since it was declared a heritage village under Malacca's Preservation and Conservation Enactment in 1989.

Architecture[edit]

The village houses more than 100 traditional Malay houses.[3]
