Hagia Irene Museum

Hagia Irene, Istanbul Overview

Also known as Saint Irene, Hagia Irene is the oldest Byzantine church situated in the outer courtyard of Topkapi Palace. The second-largest in Istanbul after Hagia Sophia, it is now converted into a museum and concert hall. Easily accessible by tram with the nearest stop being Sultanahmet, its atrium offers spectacular architectural beauty with structures such as a narthex, three-nave naos and abscissa.

it was built in the 4th century under the reign of Constantine I. However, it was destroyed several times in revolts and natural disasters before finally getting restored in the 8th century. It opened its doors to the general public in 2014. The concert hall is inarguably the most compelling aspect of the attraction and has been home to many musical performances and festivals.
