Jonker Street is an old street running through Malaka, Malaysia. It’s  now the core zone of the Malaka UNESCO World Heritage Site. The name Jonker is said to mean “junk”, referring to the Chinese vessels.

Jonker Street was where the different Chinese clans formed their clan associations. Among them, the Hokkiens established theirs in 1837, along with the clan associations of the Tan, Lee, and others. Most of the shophouses along Jonker Street were built in early 20th century, although some goes back to as early as almost two centuries ago.
