Religious Site Tourist Spot
The Armenian Church of Saint Gregory the Illuminator, referred to as Armenian Church locally, is the oldest Christian church in Singapore, located at Hill Street in the Museum Planning Area, within the Central Area. The church was completed in 1835 and consecrated the next year. Originally a parish of the Armenian Apostolic Church, an Oriental Orthodox denomination, the last Armenian parish priest left in the late 1930s as Armenian population in Singapore dwindled. It was designated as a national monument in 1973. Armenian and Oriental Orthodox services are now regularly held at the church.

  • The statues and art work in the area around the church is remarkable. The simplicity of the house of worship is amazing. A true gem of a church.
  • A nice and quiet place to visit to this Armenian Church at 60 Hill Street. Built in 1835-1836 (More than 180 years ago) and It is the oldest church in Singapore.
  • The Armenian Church is the earliest Christian Church in Singapore and was built in 1835. There are statues and tombstones in the church grounds. The church is open to public and provides a quiet respite from the noisy city traffic
  • iluminating, a exqusite piece of histroy. going back to take a closer look.
  • A very neat piece of Singapore's history and a tribute to the Armenian community. Very nice chapel and gardens. A good place for quiet prayer and contemplation. Worth a visit.
