Singapore's oldest church
What we say:
This small white church was built in 1835, making it not just the oldest church in Singapore but one of the city's oldest buildings.
The church once had the domed roof and bell turret typical of Armenian architecture, but they were removed for structural reasons and now the church looks classically colonial.
Singapore's Armenian community was never very large but they were influential, and the church grounds contain a memorial garden for notable Armenians like Agnes Joaquim, who bred the national flower.
