Ever wondered what the Armenian contribution was to our wonderful city - Where do they worship? Why is their Christmas on the 6th of January? What did they build? Where is their cemetery? Where is the 'Armenian Para'? What's the difference between other Christians and Armenian Orthodox Christians? Do they have schools in the city? Which famous Christian Saint's relic is kept by them? What do they eat?
