Kariye Mosque
The most mesmerizing church in Istanbul, Chora Church is located away from the city center and takes a little more effort to reach, but it is definitely worth the trouble. If you plan to visit it independently, get yourself the portable Alldaywifi device and download the very handy Trafi app, that provides detailed information on Istanbul’s excellent public transport system. Whichever way you chose to travel to Chora Church, you will be rewarded with the most spell-binding frescos and mosaics that are unlike anything else you’ll see in Istanbul. Built to restore the glory of Constantinople after the city was sacked in the Fourth Crusade, no expense had been spared in the creation of this masterpiece. #Constantinople #architecture #art
