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.

  • It is an Armenian Church in the middle of a Muslim country and is run by a Hindu! Many tombs and many stories next to the Church, a haven of peace in a city very chaotic

  • The Armenian church stands in the middle of the city of Dhaka for its style of construction and home to the cemetery of the Armenian people exiled here.

  • very good place to learn heritage.
  • 3 star for present poor condition but 5 star for historic value. Very poorly maintained, dirty and uncared for. Litter and other rubbish and waste all over even the tombstones. Really disappointing. Renovation work is going on so hopefully things will improve. If maintained properly this could be a top attraction in town. I saw a frave as recent as of 2005. This means there would still be a community around this place. It is this very community that must have undertaken the renovation work. A lot more could be done.
  • This church is beautiful. A prayer hall for Christian people
  • one of the best and oldest church of dhaka...this is the most beautiful church I ever seen
  • I had opportunities to visit inside. Normally it is not open for public. Not too big and one of oldest church in Armenian period.
