Les 750 ans de l'Etat de Malacca. 750 years of Malacca State.
Thank you so much Khor Kok Keong for this superb FDC cover with two stamps issued to commemorate the 750 anniversary of the founding of Malay-Melaka Empire. Malacca (Melaka in Malay) is nowadays one of the thirteen states forming Malaysia, associated with three federal territories. The 50 sen stamp depicts the Cheng Hoon Temple which sits not far from Kampung Hulu Mosque and the Poyyata Vinayagar Morthi Temple. All three sit on Harmony street! On the 90 sen stamp, the Masjid Kampung Hulu has pride of place. This structure built along the Sumatran design is the oldest functioning mosque in Malaysia. Built in 1728, it still stands on its original site.
