Meet Our Communities: The Armenians

Travellers visiting the bustling city-state of Singapore may not be aware of the great impact made by the Armenians, one of our smallest minority communities. But they have left a legacy incommensurate with their numbers. 

Along with the Church of St. Gregory the Illuminator (usually just known as the Armenian Church) and its parsonage, there are other reminders of their presence, including the Raffles Hotel, the Straits Times newspaper, and Singapore’s national flower.
