The location of Glass Bottle Temple Melaka is quite confusing, because of its 100-H, address Jalan Laksamana Cheng Ho.

People would easily confused it with Taman Laksamana near the river or Taman Laksamana Cheng Ho.

Actually, it is located at some old housing area. (We can’t tell the area name yet.)

The landmark nearby…. maybe the Bandar Hilir 4 storey flat (Bandar Hilir 四楼).
