Armenians Christmas Kolkata

Armenians celebrated Christmas every year on 6th January at Armenian Church, Kolkata or Armenian Church of the Holy Nazareth. This is very interesting to see those rituals and activities, Though last two year they did not allow photographers/filmmakers to shoot their rituals without prior permission of there new father of Armenian Church Kolkata. But back then they allow photographers/filmmakers to shoot. The reason maybe crowded, privacy & other things. I was there to document Armenian Christmas celebration at Armenian Church, Kolkata or Armenian Church of the Holy Nazareth, unfortunately that year father was changed and they not allowing to photograph/film year of 2016 . If you want to photograph/film you need a permission from father (from Armenian College) before hand this festival.
