Record-setting Biggest Peranakan Lantern by Himalaya Sports
Visiting Jonker Walk anytime soon? Stop by the country’s biggest Peranakan lanterns sponsored by Himalaya Sports candy then!
The back story is that these giant lanterns boasting a beautiful design depicts the historic and legendary voyage by Admiral Zheng He to Malacca for diplomatic and trade purposes at the behest of the Ming dynasty emperor in the early 15th century, which would later develop into strong ties between the two kingdoms and led to our Peranakan culture.
How big are these giant lanterns? Acknowledged by the Malaysia Book of Records as the “Biggest Peranakan Lanterns”, they stand at 12-feet high and 8-feet wide! The official launch of the lanterns recently was witnessed by the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Dato Sri Tiong King Sing, and Melaka Jonker Walk Committee Chairman, Datuk Wira Gan Tian Loo.
