Pammakaristos Church, Istanbul Overview

Pammakaristos Church, also known as the Church of Theotokos Pammakaristos, is a well-known Byzantine church and museum located in the Carsamba town of Fatih district. It houses the third-largest Byzantine mosaics in Istanbul after Hagia Sophia and Chora Church which visitors can see along with Constantinople's Palaiologan architecture.

One of the most famous mosaics is the one displaying the Pantocrator surrounding the Old Testament’s prophets which can be found right under the dome. After considerable debate over its origins, it is said to have been constructed in the 8th century. It was converted to the Fethiye Mosque in the 1600s and the main building still remains a mosque, but the side chapel or the parekklesion has been a museum since 1949.
