Chora Church & Museum - Kariye Museum, Istanbul: 51 reviews and 122 photos
The Anastasis, depicting Christ dominant over Satan in chains and opening the tombs of Adam and Eve, is one of the most astonishing and important works of art in the whole of Europe. Unfortunately, it is not bathed in good lighting. For this you must hold your breath, set your camera to the proper exposure, and keep perfectly still by leaning against the wall. There is no more dramatic Christian image from the time of the emperors in all Istanbul.
