Overview

The Column of Marcian, or the “Column of the Maiden” (Turkish: Kiztasi) as it is known in Turkish, was erected in memory of the Byzantine Emperor Marcian in 455 C.E. For many years it was kept in the garden of a private house and remained hidden from the public view until it was discovered in 1908 in the course reconstruction after a fire.

Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community,
the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and
some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art
in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to
witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving
ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene
shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid
