Skywatch Friday... Armenian Church


And finally, i was headed towards Armenian Street across from the High court to explore the Armenian Church. It had been on my mind forever, and to think i was standing at the door talking to the security guard about the place, it felt surreal..


The 18th century Armenian Church stood hidden away inside Armenian Street in Parry's Corner. The street is filled with hawkers and small shacks and yet nobody really knew where the church was.. At first, they pointed out to the St Mary's church few yards into the road saying "that must be it".. but i did manage to find the Armeninan church and explore the place...


Once upon a time, Chennai was filled with Armenian merchants, but today, only stories about these traders remains... The only trace of Armenians is the church and the Cemetery around on a street named after them.
