Church sights in Bangladesh
- Sort by:
The peach-pink Armenian Church of the Holy Resurrection, is the soul of this now almost extinct community. The church, which dates from 1781, is an oasis of tranquillity in the heart of the crowded city. During the course of the Liberation War, the silver setting and organ were stolen and many of the graves were desecrated. Mr Martin, the caretaker, has done much to restore the church, and delights in giving personal tours. Note that you can’t get in without him unlocking the door for you.
