The Crimean Memorial Protestant Church (also Christ Church) in Karaköy/Tünel:




Quote:
It was originally the Crimean Memorial Church located behind and below the Russian consulate on İstiklal Caddesi. It was closed in 1970s due to the lack of community but again opened for worship in 1991. The largest and most handsome of the city's Protestant churches, it was designed and built after the Crimean War in 1856 by the famous British architect C.E. Street. It has neo-Gothic structure and all of the stone stuff used in the building was brought from Malta.
It looks really good from the outside, I'll post more pictures of it later.

Surp Krikor Lusavoriç/Getronagan Armenian Apostolic Church, Karaköy:



Quote:
This is the Church of St. Gregory, the Illuminator and the oldest Armenian Church in Istanbul. According to old writings, Surp Sarkis Church was around as early as 1360. A new church was constructed in 1431 however it had to be demolished due to the widening the road between Tophane and Karaköy. It was rebuilt by architect Bedros Zobyan in 1965 and is one of the few churches built during the Republic period. It has a specific place among the other Armenian churches with its conical dome. Inner illumination is provided by the few narrow windows suitable to Armenian Church design. The belfry next to the entrance carries the classical Armenian Church architecture.

The Turkish Orthodox Patriarchate in Karaköy with the Meryemana Church:





Turkish Orthodox? That's right! But not so sympathetic imo:

Quote:
The Autocephalous Turkish Orthodox Patriarchate (Turkish: Bağımsız Türk Ortodoks Patrikhanesi), also referred to as the Turkish Orthodox Church (Türk Ortodoks Kilisesi), is an unrecognised Orthodox Christian denomination, with strong influences from Turkish nationalist ideology.

One of the grandest ancient centres of the christianity is Thrace-Anatolia=Turkey. There were many many saints hailed from these lands. the seven churches in bible are in Turkey, as being a part of the ancient Roman world. Once was the zenith of it!

The ones that I posted, and most of the others from Istanbul, are in Europe. The others are in Asia.

No,is very important this for me.Turkey is only 4% in Europe geographicly,the rest of teritorry is in Asia and is a large territory, Turkey is a big country.So i was interested how european cultures had influences regarding to religious architecture in outher parts of the world, for exemple here churches in a muslim part of Asia.

It's actually vice-versa. It's Europe which is effected by Anatolia when it comes to the religion. World's oldest churches and biblical ones situated in Asia. There are churches in Anatolia as old as 2000 years. It's same for Near East. All Abrahamic religions were born in Asia afterall.
