The museum can only be visited with a permission from the Ayasofya or Aya Sophia Museum. Aya Irini Church, which is from the Byzantine period, still keeps its original charm as it has not been converted to a museum after the Ottomans took over Istanbul. 
Konstantin built St. Irene church upon Roman temples in 330 while he was re-establishing the city. Hagia Irene or Hagia Eirene’s dictionary meaning is ‘ Holy Peace ‘. Her real name was Penelope, and she tried to spread Christianity. She was thrown into a dip full of snakes by Putperests, however she did not die. Later, she was stoned, and she still did not die. Putperests converted into Christianity after these miracles; Irene became a saint. Emperor Konstantin named this building as St. Irene after this.
