|St. John's Fort|
|Kubu St. John|
|Location||Melaka City, Melaka, Malaysia|
The fort was constructed during the Dutch Malacca in the 18th century to guard against landward attack. It was once a private chapel dedicated to St. John the Baptist.
The fort has canons that are facing inland because the Dutch feared inland threats from Acehnese and Bugis invaders more than maritime invasions.
