Armenian Church of the Holy Resurrection, Dhaka City

3.9
#3 of 27 in Historic Sites in Bangladesh
Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • Is the Church has kept Armenia residents settled in Dhaka, Armenia to diaspora. Even though Armenia of almost Bangladeshis and the appearance was visited Armenia Muslims similar to Bangladeshis to worship. These words stand out in a yellow appearance of the Bible written in Armenia characters, such as the altar is seen.

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.
