2011 Flashback – A bit of Armenia in Madras

 It is a joke that I spend more time in Chennai aka Madras than in Bangalore. Almost every month, I spend a few days in my hometown. But this trip was special. I revisited several landmarks and went on a few heritage walks during the Madras Day celebrations.

And I finally visited the 18th century Armenian Church in Armenian Street in Parry’s Corner. There was a time when Chennai was filled with Armenian merchants and even today, stories float around. But all that remains today is a lone church and a street named after the community.
