It is wonderful to be able to visit for a second time an enchanting spot to which you never expected to return. I first came across the bewitching Armenian church in Chennai - and blogged about it - two years ago. This morning, with a friend, I was back there.
Chennai's Armenians are long gone. The church caretaker is a Catholic and Anglo-Indian. But there's still, just, an Armenian community in Calcutta, in what was the second city of the British Empire. And the previous day, a priest and thirty or so people of Armenian descent had flown in for a few hours from Bengal, and held the first act of worship in this church for a year or two.
I have been to Armenian churches in three South Asian cities - Calcutta and Rangoon/Yangon as well as here in Chennai. (I believe there's a church in Dhaka that I have yet to see.) This is perhaps the nicest, and so heartening that it continues, just now and again, to echo to Armenian liturgy.
Chennai is the best places of the India having the mountains and very peaceful life there people are spending. Coincidence of the Chennai with me happened when I got the tour for the meeting of the dealer ship on the business that was Chennai biggest man.
Visit if heritage places is very interesting hobby and people enjoy a lot with watch of historical marks in different shapes. This place is still fine in view and full with verity of colors that are describing the cultural values.
