From the rise of the Melaka Sultanate and the thriving ancient spice trade, a distinctive community carves its destiny.

Descendants of Indian merchants, the Melaka Chetti community is characterized by intermarriages, cultural assimilation and unique Hindu practices which are deeply woven into the fabric of our history.

This is our story.
