Armenian Church

Armenian Church
Once a place of worship in this historic Armenian community, which was settled in the 17th century, the Armenian Church in Dhaka is now a quiet sanctuary in a nearly empty town where few Armenians remain. Still, the impressive church with its cream and yellow exterior pays homage to a time when this population of people ruled local trade and industry after leaving their homeland in search of political and economic freedom.

Built in 1781, the church is surrounded by more than 300 tombstones of fallen Armenians. In addition to its beautiful, traditional façade, the church was once home to a stunning clock tower and spiral staircase that were later destroyed in an earthquake. Visitors who are lucky enough to tour this religious gem will still find incredible paintings on the interior and a large marble font for baptisms. A local groundskeeper is sometimes available for private, informal tours, and can share stories about the Armenian Church’s history, its people, and even the time Mother Teresa stayed here during a visit to Dhaka.

Practical Info

The church is located on Armanitola Road in Dhaka. Despite its popularity and  historical significance, the church is typically closed. In order to tour the grounds, visitors will need to find the caretaker and have him unlock the gate.
