Yesilkoy Hagios Stephanos Greek Orthodox Church

Yesilkoy Hagios Stephanos Greek Orthodox Church
Hagios Stephanos Greek Orthodox Church (or Aziz Istefanos Church) is on Mirasyedi Street which is close to Yesilkoy Marina and is believed to have been built on the St. Etienne Monastery. This is where Crusaders during the 1204 occupation of Constantinople took up temporary residence for three days, and Sarkis S. Hovhannesyan (1740-1805) noted that there was a church in the village of Yesilkoy known as Ay Stefanos.  

The church seen today was built in 1845 with an external area of 22.31 x 13.75m and 10.5m high; the bell tower with the three-nave basilica plan was constructed at a later time.  In the upper part of the iconosstasis there are small frames containing illustrations of the life of Jesus and in larger frames below are illustrations of Hagios Stephanos, the Virgin Mary and Child Jesus, Jesus, and Johannes Prodromos.  The Pantocrator Christ is inside the ceiling of the nave and the front side of the gallery contains painted illustrations from the Bible.
