Malacca (Malay: Melaka) is located
in the southern region of the Malay Peninsula,
on the Straits of Malacca.
It borders Negeri Sembilan to the north
and the state of Johor to the south.
The state's capital is Malacca Town.
This historical city centre has been listed
as a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO
since 7th July 2008.
Although Malacca was
once one of the oldest Malay sultanates,
the state has no Sultan today.
Instead, the head of state is
the Yang di-Pertua Negeri or Governor.
