Armenian Church, Singapore

3.8
Singapore’s oldest Christian church is an architectural masterpiece from the early 19th century. Its memorial garden includes the commemorative tombstone of Agnes Joaquim, who crossbred Singapore's national flower. The Armenian Church is Singapore’s oldest Christian church. In 1973, the building was gazetted as a national monument and restored two decades later. Renowned Irish architect George D. Coleman included a dome roof and bell turret in its original design, but these were subsequently removed. Today, the building has a pitched roof and spire. Visitors may recognise the church’s traditional interior - its vaulted ceiling, cupola and porticoes. Visitors should leave time for a stroll through the serene Memorial Garden, where a commemorative tombstone of Agnes Joaquim stands.
