Church of Holy Trinity or Aya Triada
LocationThe entrance to this huge Greek Church is found when you turn left off Istiklal Road along Meselik Street.
The Design of the ChurchThe church was designed in 1880 by Vasilaki Ioannidi and was one of the first churches in Istanbul to have a dome as they were only permitted on mosques until this law was abolished.
Inside the main part of the church, there is a huge space at the front of a towering iconostasis and little else, and unless you visit on a Sunday morning you will only manage to see the narthex.
Also along Meselik Street are the Zapyon and Essaying Schools that are both blackened with soot.
