Rooftop Churches of Istanbul

Istanbul, known by many names throughout the ages, became one of the cities that received the most immigration after it was opened to settlement during the Roman Empire. The city, which has a place on the world's agenda with its location as a bridge between the Middle East and Europe, its Bosphorus called the "pearl", its history dating back thousands of years and its non-stop life 24/7, has been the capital of three civilizations since the day it was founded. Many places of worship have been opened in Istanbul, which has become a cosmopolitan city where different nations live together, thanks to immigration from all over the world. The city, where mosques, churches and synagogues are located side by side, has become the "World Capital" by hosting all religions and cultures. For this purpose, churches were built on the roofs of the inns built in the 19th century in Karaköy, Beyoğlu district. These "rooftop churches", which are unnoticed by those passing through the streets but can be seen from a bird's eye view, shed light on the history of the city and continue to host members who want to worship. In these roof churches, which still exist today, services are held every Sunday and on religious holidays.
