If you love history and have interest on Armenian Structure, architecture. You should visit this church at old Dhaka. This beautiful Armenian structure is more than 100 years old.

This was so peaceful! A calm place in the middle of the crowded town. The graveyard was beautiful. Go visit it!

Armenian Church was a good visit, esp amidst the chaos of Puran(Old) Dhaka. Dhaka doesn't have that many old monuments so this one stands out.

We stopped here quickly on our tour of Old Dhaka. The caretaker who showed us around was very friendly and kind. From a sightseeing perspective, it was average but the warmth of the gentleman and the cute puppies who were living on the grounds, made it worthwhile.

A unusual Church with a yellow and white interior that has recently been restored, in spite of the church now only being open for major religious festivals. There are many interesting gravestones in and around the church that give a real glimpse in to the rich history of the Armenian population who played a major part in the early commercial... More
