The controversial Christ the Redeemer statue in Portuguese Settlement Melaka

The controversial replica Christ the Redeemer statue, under construction in Portuguese Settlement Melaka

The controversial replica statue of Christ the Redeemer is built recently by the residents of Portuguese Settlement Melaka hoping to complete the construction before Christmas. As it is built without local city council, Melaka Historic City Council (MBMB)’s approval, the construction has been put on hold and has been given a notice to tear down the statue.

Since Portuguese Settlement Melaka is only miles away from where I stay, I dropped by to capture a shot of the headless statue as memory. Let’s hope the issue can be resolved peacefully, and hopefully before Christmas.
