A good friend took us here last year. You step out of the hustle and bustle of the street into this quiet and serene other world. The church is only used a couple of times each year as I believe the Armenian population in Dhaka has all but disappeared. The church and cemetery are beautifully kept. A lot of history is recorded on the many gravestones.

A nice and relaxing place in old Dhaka. As I heard this church has only two services annually in Easter and in Christmas. Recommended!

We had a nice visit to Armenian Church. Built in 1781, Armenian square during the past 2 centuries and used to be graveyard then church. Well maintained by Armenians, handled to locals.

It is a small church, but probably the oldest in Bangladesh. It has a beautiful bell-tower. This was the center for the small effluent Armenian community at the turn of the 19th century. Mr. Martin the curator, is one of the few Armenians left in Dhaka. He was very pleasant and welcoming.

Had no idea I would stumble upon this beautiful quaint little Christian church. It is tucked in within old Dhaka, and has a beautiful small cemetery. Definitely well worth stopping by to pay respect.

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 shared a great evening with the community.

The Armenian Church (also known as Armenian Apostolic Church of the Holy Resurrection) is a historically significant architectural monument situated in the Armanitola area of old Dhaka, Bangladesh. The church bears testimony to the existence of a significant Armenian community in the region in the 17th and 18th centuries.

There is almost 350 graves that can take you to the history that once Armenian were in this region in great number. Thi one of the old monument of Dhaka established in 1781. Among the hussle and bussle of old Dhaka it is a quite place inside.

Recommended by a well-travelled friend who had said that it was 'the most beautiful church I have ever visited', we were intrigued to see what it would be like. In some ways the church and graveyard are structured similarly to the Armenian church in Kolkata - both also offering peaceful respite from busy surrounding streets.

The church had been recently repainted and refurbished at the beginning of January 2016 and was looking stunning in the sun. I think the moment must have been significant for my friend rather than being awed by any particular architectural feature. However, it's likely you'll have the space to yourself, and the peaceful surrounds do make for a remarkable sense of contrast in Dhaka.

The gate will likely be locked, but if you tap on the metal, the guard will most likely rouse himself and let you in. Once inside there is a very knowledgable man who will show you around the church and some of its interesting features. He also will tell you about the work the church is doing to invigorate the Armenian parish community and give you information about service times, should you want to attend an Armenian-speaking service.

A top place to visit in old Dhaka, close to other attractions, so worth the hike.

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 living in Dhaka, Mr. Martin and a Hindu family that helps him around. This church is a very lovely runaway from the noise of Dhaka. We did ask to meet Mr. Martin, who's an old man, and had a lovely chat with him. The church is located in the old part of Dhaka, so if you're new to Dhaka, consider seeing and smelling all kinds of unpleasant stuff before you get there.
Overall, definitely worth visiting!
