Gul Mosque or Church of St. Theodosia

Gul Mosque or Church of St. Theodosia
This grand triple-apsed mosque is on Şair Nebi Sokak in Cibali Istanbul and was originally a Byzantine church built in the 9th or 10th century and converted to a mosque around 1490 when the dome and minaret were added.  Gül means rose in Turkish and the name changed to the ‘Rose Mosque’ as in 1453 on May 29, which is the feast day of St. Theodosia, a large crowd had gathered in the church and decorated it with many garlands of roses as they prayed to be protected from the approaching Turks, and when the conquering soldiers entered the church they couldn’t believe the amount of roses that were there and so the mosque acquired its name.
