“Pretty church”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

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 and well maintained but there isn't a lot to see so it's a quick visit. Have some small change ready as the caretaker will ask for a 'gift' as you're leaving.

“an odd place”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

with a lot of history and in the old city so it combines with other things too- just as it reads in the guide book

“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.
