St George's church in Ayvalik, my ancestral origin from my mother's side, in the Aegean coast of Turkey. .



These images are very old, ca 1968 or something, taken by a friend of the family who was also from there.

Overall I am surprised by the variety of Christian churches (orthodox and non-orthodox) in Turkey.

Excellent thread, a BIG thank you to all contributors.

Very sad for me. A closed chapter of what was a very cosmopolitan time for the Turkish People.

There has been much debate on these boards about how Turkish ancient monuments are not connected with 'Greeks' by the Turkish Tourist Authorities. I believe those anvient temples are the dead monuments of the Ancient Greeks and the vast majority of these churches, the last remnants of Hellenism itself in Asia.

A sad, but dignified and respectful symbols of a race that once dominated that part fo the world. Here are some great romantic ruins, mostly Greek, with one or two Armenian! Need help resizing if anyone can!

What a disgrace! Just look at how poorly these once-grand structures are being maintained/restored.

I am shocked.
