The graves of about 350 Armenians and six bells with inscriptions are seen in the church. The Armenians were merchants who walked all the way from Armenia... More

If you have been to Armenian street in George Town you may have seen this church that would have lent the street its name. Built in 1700's this church is a blink and miss type from the outside. Step into it and be transported into a world of silence, nostalgia and peace. This now deserted church with a watchman and... More

We visited this place during Christmas time to buy X-mas decorative items from nearby stores and buy Bakery products from nearby McRennet shop. This church has low seating capacity, but it seems to be very old heritage structure and is well maintained so far.

Located on Armenian Street, Parrys is this very old and ancient church, opposite to Madras High Court Building on NSC Bose Road side. Gets pretty crowded during Sunday Prayer service and on few other occasions. Building maintenance is not so good, despite having lot of heritage value.

The church compound is a peaceful, quaint and crumbling oasis in the middle of the noisy and bustling Parrys area of Chennai. The church itself was closed when I went there so the visit was limited to the courtyard (that doubles as a historic cemetery) that offers a pleasant and interesting break from the outside world. As in most historic... More
