According to the 16th century Malay Annals, the city was founded by Parameswara.
Some believe it more likely that he was a Hindu prince and political fugitive from nearby Java.
Malacca (Malay: Melaka)  is the capital of the state of Malacca, on the west coast of peninsular Malaysia.
Visiting Malacca is a unique experience with a rich historical and cultural background from previous Portuguese, Dutch and British rule.
It was believed that such fortifications could withstand the encroachments of other European powers eager for a slice of the Asian luxury goods trade.

The legend goes that Parameswara was out on a hunt in the region and had stopped to refresh himself near what is now the Malacca River.
Standing near a melaka (Indian gooseberry) tree he was surprised to witness one of his hunting dogs so startled by a mouse deer that it fell into the river.
Malacca had a navigable harbor sheltered by nearby Sumatra across the narrow straits.
The location was supplied with an ample quantity of fresh water, enjoyed a prime location relative to the shifting monsoon winds, and had a central location in regional trade patterns, all of which soon made it a prosperous trading town.
The city centre was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in July 2008, along with Georgetown, Penang. Before the arrival of the first Sultan, Malacca was a simple fishing village inhabited by local Malays.
