Located on Armenian Street, Parrys is this very old and ancient church, opposite to Madras High Court Building on NSC Bose Road side. Gets pretty crowded during Sunday Prayer service and on few other occasions. Building maintenance is not so good, despite having lot of heritage value.

The Armenian Church is an under-appreciated and little-known heritage site in Chennai. Viewed from the Armenian street, the exterior of the church may not suggest anything special.

Although it looks very simple but once you enter you can realise how its important historically with antique wooden furniture and speaks volumes about the past with stone graving on the floor! the care taker is very good and he is trying his best to maintain the Church.he is well informed and gives a detailed description about the past history...
