This another amazing Byzantine Church in Istanbul.It s desapread between Istanbul University Buildings but still you can see it s unique Architecture.

You can see the some part of the building demolished and basic contruction still remaning on the gorund.

The church has been converted a mosque but stil you can feel and see it s been build as a orthodox church.

It s very clean and nice but still you can feel that some of the part of the church renovated or demolished very badly.

Marble plated walls are very impressive also you can see the Muslim Mihrab showing the Kibla
.
Must see and non touristy places.

Address: 16 Mart Sehitleri Caddesi, Vezneciler, Eminonu
