The Church of the Holy Saviour in Chora (Turkish Kariye Kilisesi) is one of the most beautiful surviving examples of a Byzantine church.

In the Edirnekapi area in the belediye of Fatih of Istanbul, Chora is off the regular tourist path, but well worth a special visit. In the 16th century, during the Ottoman era, St. Saviour church in Chora was converted into a mosque and its artwork was whitewashed. It was restored as a museum in 1948. The interior of the building is covered with fine mosaics and frescoes.

This collection contains over 30 images of the Chora, in 640 x 480 format.
