Armenian Church of the Holy Resurrection, Dhaka City

Bright yellow Armenian Church of the Holy Resurrection remains a spiritual sanctuary and commemorates the cultural heritage of the now small Armenian community. High ceilings, lots of natural light and simple decoration lend to an airy feel, contrasting the ornate exterior. Interesting stonework embellishes the yellow walls while small white columns sit on on the top. A caretaker keeps the church maintained and sometimes offers casual guided tours. Take a walk around the lush palm tree garden to see gravestones with Armenian inscriptions.

    The Church is located in Old Dhaka and near other attractions so you can take it "on the road". It is a relatively small church and it was not easy to find someone who could unlock it. We went in a bit on the farm and around a bit to find a really nice man who happily locked up and came in and told me about all we pointed at.

    Very well maintained, caretakers very friendly (they didn't ask for "donations" or anything), and the way the gravestones are inlaid in the ground is really cool.

Where to stay in Dhaka City

Hotels in Dhaka are among the world's most affordable, but due to a lack of tourist infrastructure you should plan ahead to avoid misunderstanding. Most of the upmarket hotels group in the downtown area, while budget hotels cluster in Old Dhaka. There is a wide range of room or apartment rentals and guesthouses, though some areas impose restrictions for renting out to foreigners. If staying long-term, explore options in Gulshan and Banani, north of town.
