  • The Armenian Church is located on the Armenian Street in George Town. Constructed in 1712, thus making it one of the oldest churches of the Indian subcontinent, the Armenian Church is also known as the Armenian Church of Virgin Mary.  The Armenian Church complex consists of a small chapel and a belfry tower. The chapel has a prayer hall with wooden seats arranged in front of an altar. A total of six metal bells are hung in the belfry. The bells are believed to be the largest and heaviest and have inscriptions to indicate the origin. The Armenian Church has also served as a cemetery and around 350 graves have been laid out throughout the complex. Today, though no services are held, the church is open to visitors of all faiths between 9.30 am and 2.30 pm on all days.  Fort St George can also be clubbed while you are visiting the Armenian Church. Suitable for the whole family, the best time to visit the Armenian Church is between the months of October and February when the Chennai weather is at its best. Being in the heart of the city the Armenian Church is easily reachable by bus and cabs.
