If memory serves me this is the Malacca Club of the era when Malacca was a British Straits Colony.After the Japanese overran the area Gen
Tomoyuki Yamashita addressed Japanese troops from its front porch.Following the British re-occupation Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru addressed the local Indian Community (when he was the guest of Lord Mountbatten the SEAC Commander in Singapore) just before India gained Independence.Tunku Abdul Rehman is understood to have made his demand for MERDEKA from this historical venue
Beautiful historical building.
