  • Well preserved Historical monuments were built 1712 still survived and reflects the marvelous architecture and flourishing Armenian presence. Nice place to look back the history, Care taker will explain about the church, the location is previously shore front now lots of British built structures occupied surrounding ( sbi administration office, Post office and insurance companies). Easy to notify from main road just opposite to Madras high court. We can spend an hour to know the history....Enjoy it.
  • Built in 1712 and restored in 1772 by the Armenian community for Holy Virgin Mary still maintaining the sanctity surrounded by monuments. A stone for the builder of Marmalong bridge and steps at St.Thomas Mount.A wonderful place with highly responsive guide. Must visit.
  • A historic place worth the visit!!!
  • Opens at 930 am everyday. 6 Bells are rung only Sundays at 930am. Beautifully preserved and a small oasis of peace in the hubub of parys corner. It's 6 bells are rung every Sunday at 930am. No masses are held. The property is owned by Armenian descendents in Kolkata apparently. This place along with its beautiful garden would make for a lovely art gallery and cafe
  • Beautifully maintained church that is 100's of years old.
