The rise of Melaka Sultanate city as the international trade centre and ‘emporium of the east’ in the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries has been well explained and discussed by many scholars. The Melaka Sultanate city has gone through two and a half centuries of its historical narrative. However, less academic study has been done to trace the Melaka Sultanate physical constructs and municipality in their geo-location. This study investigates historical records in its attempt to trace Melaka Sultanate constructs within the municipality of colonial Melaka period. This study is moulded by the nature of investigative and exploratory research; a study which built its understanding by collecting, examining, analysing and assembling ‘relevant puzzles’ into the mix based on the historical information as fundamental ground in making its case. Data collection in the research includes analysis of archival materials which provides descriptive information related to the municipality contemporary to the Sultanate period and historical visuals, largely municipal plans produced in the post Sultanate period. In achieving its objectives, this study is driven by narrative analysis, and visual anthropological analysis framework. Based on the finding of this study, there are strong cases where constructs in the tradition of Melaka Sultanate can be traced within the post Melaka Sultanate municipal plans. The research contributes to a reconstruction study of Melaka Sultanate in view of heritage to tourism that is align with SDG11.4 & 8.9.
