The Armenian Church of St. Gregory the illuminator was the first permanent place of Christian worship in Singapore. The church was built in 1835 and the spire was added later, in 1850. It was able to seat a congregation of only 50 people, a reflection of the minority status of the local Armenian community then.
Designed by G.D. Coleman, the architect responsible for other landmarks of early Singapore such as St. Andrew’s Cathedral, the church is an elegant example of tropical Neo-Classical architecture. The interior contains a photograph of the Armenian community from around 1917, as well as portraits of the patriarchs of the Armenian Church. In the church’s compound is the grave of Agnes Joaquim, who discovered an orchid hybrid in 1893. The flower was later named Vanda Miss Joaquim for her and adopted as Singapore’s national flower.
