Erected in the 17th century, the Armenian Church is an old heritage church, that will mesmerize you with its quaint characteristics. Apart from being one of the few Armenian churches of India, the church also “is one of the oldest churches of the Indian subcontinent”. The six belfries of the church are one of the most highlighted attributes of the church. Other significance of the church lies in the fact that there are graves of 350-odd Armenians that have been laid out throughout the property. This includes the grave of Reverend Haroutiun Shmavonian who was the founder, editor and publisher of the world's first Armenian publication “Azdarar”. The church is a sojourn of the few hundred Armenians that Chennai was once home to.
