What is more important after this are the Melaka’s ability to preserve and defend the World Heritage Title. Melaka CM said the State Government is not only committed to preserve all the historical remains but all the old commercial buildings and residential buildings dated hundred years back will also be treat the same.
Apart from the physical factor the human factor also make Melaka unique compared to others heritage site. The diverse culture started as early as 15 century till now still can be seen and live together side by side. A living heritage of Melaka.
