Hidden away amid the bustle of Old China Bazaar St, the 1707 Armenian Church is claimed to be Kolkata’s oldest place of Christian worship. It has a squat but finely proportioned, whitewashed spire that can be best spied from Bonfield Lane. Sign a guest book to escape the melee of the surrounding stationery market and wander into the courtyard paved with old gravestones inscribed with Armenian script. The oldest is dated 1630.
