Good to visit if you're in the area, this nice little church is buried down a side street in Old Dhaka. By the time we'd reached the gate someone had alerted the caretaker to our approach and he was there with the keys. There are some interesting old gravestones in the courtyard and the interior of the church is peaceful... More

If you're visiting the Armenian Church, I advise to combine it with Lalbagh Fort and Ahsan Manzil, since they're quite close. Consider, it can take you 2-3 hours in the traffic alone. The Armenian church of Dhaka is a lovely historical place. Being Armenian, I couldn't miss this place while in Dhaka. It's well maintained by the only Armenian currently... More

This place is located in the Puran (Old) Dhaka and one has to make some efforts to reach this place. The local name for this place is "Armenian Tula" and remember to use this name while asking the locals about the directions. The place has a history that dated back 300 years but it is neglected. The person incharge was... More

worth seeing. It's a small church. There is a pretty long history of Armenians in Dhaka. It used to be a cemetery I believe. There are gravestones all over the grounds.

In the middle of old Dhaka and with the mad world of rickshaws and car horns just outside the gates, there is this oasis of peace and quiet. The grave yard is worth seeing including a veteran of the mutiny who was born in Belfast and a man who died at the age of 108 years! The church needs some... More

Amazing little place tucked away in old Dhaka. Couldn't tell you how to get there because we were lucky to have a driver who knew, but the journe is worth it. The Church building, yard and adjoining facilities are a great contrast to all that surrounds it, which only adds to the atmosphere. We attended an Easter Service here, and... More
