If you are in the area this large church is worth a look. The tall pale blue ceiling and windows are a little plain but still makes a grand building. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

It is amazing how preserved and well-cared is this little cathedral. All the people there were friendly and very accommodating. This is also wheelchair accessible. Great stained glass motifs.

It is the only church we came across during our trip to Istanbul. It is located within 10 minute walk from Taksim Square. The building is a heritage structure. The church is open to the public and you can pray and also light some candles.
