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 Armenian church. One of the oldest places in Dhaka. It is historically significant as well. Before the church was built in 1781 it was mainly the graveyard for the Armenians. Still the church is surrounded by the graves. Tombstones and sculptures made by marbles are put on some of the graves. The surrounding area is the mix locality of commercial and residential. The area remains congested in weekdays with heavy traffic. I had been here several times, the inside of the church and it's compound are very peaceful and cozy.

  • Armenian Apostolic Church of the Holy Resurrection is a prestigious architectural structure situated in old Dhaka. It is an evidence of the existence of American during the seventeenth and eighteenth century. The Americans came to trade in this region. As jute and leather were cheap here, they flourished their trade and started with community living. The church is rectangular in shape with a huge arch gate in front. Though the church remains closed most of the time, it has got a reorganization by Bangladesh Archaeological Survey. During her visit to Dhaka, Mother Teresa stayed in this church.
