Chora museum, Chora Church or The Church of the Holy Saviour is one name to beautiful place we visited during our visit to Istanbul.
It was the old colorful painting on the wall and the experience of our tour guide. I was extremely glad that was one of her favorit places because she explained every paint with the most specific details.
The story was just like Aya Sophia museum, a former Byzantine church on the 5th century, later Ottoman transform it to a mosque in the 16th century and then become a museum in the early 20th century.
I am so glad they did not covered or altered these magnificent colorful hand painting that covers the entire wall and ceiling.
