Hagia Irene

Old City

As soon as you enter from the monumental main gate of the Topkapı Palace, you step into the first courtyard, called the Court of the Janisseries.

To the left you will see Aya Irini (Hagia Irene), one of the oldest Byzantian churches in Istanbul. This building was kept as it is during the Ottoman era and it was not converted into a mosque. The inside of this church is closed to visitors, except when there is a concert or an art show. Check your current cultural activity guides to see if there are any upcoming concerts here.


 

Transportation and Visiting Hours

Check out IstanbulFind Istanbul Transportation Map to reach church easily. 

You can visit Aya İrini (Hagia Irene) between 9.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. Museum is closed on Tuesdays.
