Armenian Church, Singapore

(3.7/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
The Armenian Church is the oldest Christian church in Singapore, located at Hill Street in the Museum Planning Area, within the Central Area, Singapore's central business district. Originally a parish of the Armenian Apostolic Church, an Oriental Orthodox denomination, the last Armenian parish priest left in the late 1930s, and with the dwindling Armenian population in Singapore, a successor was never appointed. Armenian and Oriental Orthodox services are occasionally held at the church.HistoryGeorge Drumgoole Coleman, overseer of Convicts and Superintendent of Public Works, was the architect of many of Singapore's finest historical buildings. The Armenian Church, arguably his masterpiece, is perhaps the finest landmark in the early architectural development of the nation.The government granted the land on which the church stands to the Armenian community in 1834. By 1835, the building was completed. Consecrated by Reverend Catchick Johannes in 1836 and dedicated to St Gregory the Illuminator, the first Patriarch of the Church in Armenia, it was the first church to be built in Singapore.

  • Within the old city Shepard Cathedral, Armenian Church, and again one more shot was third place. I think these three places are all really small appearance not so nice. Do not take you to visit seemed to be.

  • This church is hidden among the other buildings nearby but is so beautiful.It has a small Chappel and surrounding garden has some statues and sculptures to look at. 
  • 這教堂由最早12名定居在新加坡的亞美尼亞家庭,籌備,委託和建造,在1835年完成。它是以英國新古典主義風格建造,以亞美尼亞北部的母教堂的方式為中心設計。在教堂的理由是紀念花園,紀念幾位優秀的亞美尼亞人。這裡經常有婚姻儀式。所以,如果你和你的女朋友想要拍一張蜜月照片,你可以來這裡。
