Armenian Church

There was a significant Armenian community in Bangladesh for centuries, even if today their presence is minimal. Founded in 1781, the Armenian Church of the Holy Resurrection in Dhaka, in the neighbourhood of Armanitola, named for the Armenian community that settled there, is a remnant of that time. The beautiful church is worth a visit as a marker of the diversity that exists and has existed in the city.

Do & See

Dhaka offers a mix of people, cultures and religions, and the city's many temples and mosques could keep visitors occupied for days. Add to that the impressive monuments and historic buildings, palaces and forts, and a few fantastic museums, and there won't seem to be enough time to take it all in. And of course, don't miss the chance to take a ride down the Buriganga River for a glimpse at real Bangladeshi life.
