  Kariye Cami, or St Savior in Chora
by mrclay2000

Before we leave the immediate vicinity of the Theodosian Walls, let's backtrack to a tiny museum (once a mosque) within the walls north of the Adrianople Gate. For a pittance of an admission, you'll be absolutely astonished by the interior of this fairly plain, boutique-sized museum, whose dimensions were diminutive as a mosque (in comparison with the great complexes in the city).

Directions: half-dozen blocks north of Edirne Kapi inside the walls

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
