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.

Armenian Church, Chennai Reviews - Write a Review
Built in 1712 and restored in 1772 by the Armenian community for Holy Virgin Mary still maintaining the sanctity surrounded by monuments. A stone for the builder of Marmalong bridge and steps at St.Thomas Mount.A wonderful place with highly responsive guide. Must visit.
Opens at 930 am everyday. 6 Bells are rung only Sundays at 930am. Beautifully preserved and a small oasis of peace in the hubub of parys corner. It's 6 bells are rung every Sunday at 930am. No masses are held. The property is owned by Armenian descendents in Kolkata apparently. This place along with its beautiful garden would make for a lovely art gallery and cafe
Historic place still portraiting colonial era.
The old world charm remains intact which makes it a fascinating place to visit
I personally thank all who have maintained the church so well. .
