First of the Month Church or Ayın Biri Kilisesi

First of the Month Church or Ayın Biri Kilisesi
You will find this church and its sacred spring behind the Third Block of the IMÇ off the eastside of Atatürk Boulevard.  Christian, Jewish and Muslim women come here on the first day of every month to pray to St. Mary to help them in conceiving a child.  Outside the gates are hawkers selling charms for all kinds of desirable things such as promotion and success at work, a new car or more money, and inside there are small silver and gold wishing keys on sale that people rub on the icons that are on the church walls as they say their prayers.  Just before the entrance is the grave of Istanbul’s first mayor Hızır Bey who served from 1453 to 1458.
