Neighbourhood: George Town/Parry’s Corner
George Town is one of the busiest and most commercial neighbourhoods of Chennai. It may not boast of pubs or restaurants, but it surely offers something that the rest of Chennai can’t - a strong whiff of history. This historical area located in north Chennai is where the city of Madras was officially born in 1640 alongside Fort St. George. A walk here leads you to the well-established specialised bazaars and wholesale markets selling everything under the sun: fabrics, fruits, vegetables, spices, fabrics, camera, perfumes, jewellery, etc. Home to the High Court and other State institutions and famous for a large resident Sindhi and Marwari community, George Town is a rich congregation of shrines of different faiths within its boundaries – from Hindu and Jain temples to churches, mosques and synagogue. If you are craving some authentic North Indian food, head to streets of Sowcarpet for chaat, vada pav and other popular street snacks.
How to get there

This church - like a relic of an older era - is somehow surviving even though the Armenian minority in the city and the area decreased. It is beautiful, peaceful and quietly inviting.
It is one of the oldest churches in India.
Currently it is mostly a heritage site.

Entrance from typically hot, busy & chaotic Chennai street. Into a cool & quiet oasis set back in time. Enjoyed the serenity and sense of history.

There are lots to tell about the Church. Its more than a historic place. A very small church where only two times a year Holy Mass happens. It has the biggest Church bells in Chennai. Built on the graves of 300 Armenians who traveled to India for trading. It is well maintained and has got information about Armenians in India. Loved this amazing Church

Beautiful historical church which is maintained by Mr Jude. Currently over 300 years old with inscriptions and tombstones dating to back then. It's a nice peaceful site to visit if you're in the area.

Highly recommend a visit here. The oldest church in Chennai (17th century) with a fantastic history. Beautiful garden inside, calm and worth spending some time.
