This simple but beautiful old church built by the Armenians who settled down in Chennai many centuries ago. It has many stories. Dont miss this place if you really want to know Chennai well.

By pure coincidence I visited this place on January 6, the day of the Armenian Christmas. The church was decorated with flowers. The care taker took me to a tour of the courtyard where there are many old tombs.
