Armenian Church of St. John the Baptist is located in Chinsura, India. The church was built in 1695–1697 and is dedicated to St. John the Baptist. It is the second oldest Christian church in Bengal, and the oldest Armenian church in India. The church is well preserved due to its proximity to Kolkata and the care committee of the Armenian Churches. The Armenian Church of Chinsura was started in 1699. Each year on 13–14 January, the church celebrates the feast of John the Baptist, whose relics (bones of the left hand) are thought to be in the Armenian Church of Holy Nazareth, located 65 kilometers away, and delivered to the party in the Church Pilgrims.
