Getting to the Armenian Church is an adventure in itself. It takes you through some of the most colourful little crazy streets of this city, but on first appearance, you would think - what! I came to see this?? unimpressive until you have someone show you the little details and tell the story of the Armenian settlers. Take the time... More

Not many people know that the Armenians were flourishing traders in far away Chennai; or that they also shaped this city with their religious and social approach. This 300 year old church bears testimony to that. I visit this church quite often, just to enjoy its peace in the noisy district of George Town. You don't need to be an... More

One of the oldest churches in Chennai.Highly crowded on Fridays and festival days. Located right at the Centre of the City, Church is a good place to meditate on a regular day. One could feel the amazing quietude, once you close your eyes and stay-in for a while, for your thoughts to evaporate.

Amidst one of the most hustling-bustling places of Chennai - Parrys, this church is one place where you can go out on your own and find solace and peace in this Armenian heritage. Try to visit on a Tuesday, it's believed that it's one of the sacred days here when your wishes are granted.

A very beautiful church along a busy thoroughfare. Once you walk through the gates it is as if you walked into the countryside. It is an "airy" church as it is built for the temperate climate; no air conditioning. All the doors and windows open to the elements and with the ceiling fans overhead it is cool breezes that drift... More
