“Nice old church”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

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!

“A great piece of history”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

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 very helpful and gave an good overview of the place.

“small church in a quaint part of old Dhaka”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

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.

“A little gem (in need of a polish)”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

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 TLC and there is a collecton box. The guardian was a charming young Hindu who told us all about the community. This church holds mass at Christmas and Easter. I left my card and I hope they tell me when. I shall definitely go
