Chora Museum


 

Decorated with precious mosaics and frescoes, Chora Museum was originally built during the Byzantine era as a church. After the conquest of Istanbul it was turned into a mosque, and under the modern Republic of Turkey the building was opened to public as a museum. This church is known to serve as the court chapel during religious ceremonies. This church carries the imprint of the typical Byzantine architecture.
