Thank you all for all these interesting photographs.

I wonder if anyone knows how easy it is to photograph the interiors of these Istanbul churches, or even just to gain access to their interiors?

I'm interested in comparing their architecture to the architecture of 18th and 19th century Armenian and Greek churches that survive in central Turkey (all of which are now not operating as churches and are mostly derelict and stripped of their interior fittings and plasterwork). I've heard that for Armenian churches in Istanbul it is very difficult to take photographs - permission is required which is never given, and their caretakers are all particularly obstructive and obnoxious. That's been my experience with the still operating Armenian church in Kayseri.

There is a list of all the operating churches of various denominations in Istanbul here - http://www.armenianweekly.com/2011/0...hes-in-turkey/

But this church is not on it - it must have been closed when the list was being compiled but it reopened in 2011 (see http://www.panorama.am/en/society/20...menian-church/)

Georgia and the Georgian Orthodox Church in the form that exists today did not really exist when these churches were constructed. These churches are from Tao Klardjeti / Taik. What was to become the Georgian Orthodox Church originated in the kingdom of Kartveli. These churches are not Kartvelian.

It has not changed much - except for the pews which are a Western innovation. Here is an engraving from 1853, from the Illustrated London News.

As I experienced it, gaining access depends mostly on the quarter and the status of the church. Active churches are usually open and staffed during daytime. Also it was no problem having access to churches, also inactive ones in Taksim, Beyoglu, Kadiköy, Ortaköy, Arnavutköy, Kurtulus, Sisli, Kasimpasa and Tarlabasi. However the churches in Besiktas and Yedikule were much more reluctant, they usually didn't let me in, not because they were "obnoxious," but because they said it was forbidden by the state and they would get problems with the police if they accepted visitors.
Synagogues were completely off-limits, none of them opened their doors.

Turkey renovating Georgian church
ARTVİN


Authorities are renovating the Ishkhani Georgian church in northeastern Turkey in a bid to boost tourism numbers in the Black Sea province, the Artvin provincial head of culture has said.

Speaking to the Hürriyet Daily News in a phone interview, Hüseyin Ateş, the Artvin provincial head of culture, said the city was taking the example of Trabzon and Van.

“We have decided to begin a renovation process after seeing the examples of the Sümela Monastery in Trabzon and Akdamar Armenian Church in Van. Those places have seen a boost in tourism interest recently,” Ateş said April 12. “Now we are renovating the Ishkani Georgian church. It will also be a gesture toward Turkish-Georgian relations.”

Earlier this week, Armenian website Newz.az claimed that the restoration works on the church in Turkey had been conducted improperly and blamed the people working on the renovation for being negligent, incompetent and damaging ancient frescos.

Ateş, however, denied the claims. “Unfortunately, there are always doubts on these renovation projects, but we are working with an experienced crew,” Ateş said. “We have also assigned archaeologists to follow those claims.”

Yesilkoy district really needs a lot of Gregorian and Orthodox churches. I like the modern interior! I hope they won't cover the building with high fences and wires.
