Zeyrek Mosque Istanbul

Zeyrek Mosque Istanbul
Nestling in the heart of Zeyrek this mosque was the former 12th century Church of the Pantocrator and converted into a mosque at the time of the conquest.

Originally two churches with a connecting chapel, built between 1118 and 1136 by
John II Comnenus and Empress Irene, erected as a mausoleum for the Comnenus dynasty and continued to be used by the Paleologus dynasty. The mosque is in the south side of the church and is in an advanced state of deterioration. Among its surviving features are the revetments of the apse, the original marble doorframes and the coloured marble floor, presently carpeted over, with an interlacing geometric pattern depicting animals along its borders.

Opening Times

Officially only open at prayer times the imam (priest) will often open the door for you to enter.
