Armenian Church of the Holy Resurrection, Dhaka City

(95+ reviews on the web)
Church
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. Put Armenian Church of the Holy Resurrection into our Dhaka City trip generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Dhaka City.

  • This is a beautiful church which was built by Armenian people on 1871. It remains closed on friday for visitors. There is a graveyard situated beside the church.
  • very old & also very beautiful church... its was situated in British era
  • A well maintained and old enough church situated in old Town of Dhaka.
  • 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.
  • It's a holy place. Mainly a graveyard now. The touching things are epitaphs.
