People of all religions used to visit the church particularly on Tuesday to worship St Anthony as he consider as the powerful deity god who cures and solve all types of sorrows of his followers.

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. However, once past the church entrance, the main church building, the bell tower and the well maintained garden in a total world of quiet is great to experience. Situated just a couple of... More

Good church, pretty old, it's kept pretty bad, upkeep could have been better, very crowded all the time, lots of beggars, so just have to be very careful.

It was relocated from the current High Court Campus during the Anglo-French Wars. The security who watches over the church has lots of stories about this one... More

It is worth going. From the architectural point of view very interesting. Some history sign would be great. It could be better kept though....

This place looks so fresh from the old times. It gives a good insight to an interesting piece of architecture during the colonial times. Does live up to its expectations.
