I think this question might answer only the church itself...

Thanks for posting that! I love viewing Anglican churches around the world and comparing their styles.

Aziz Paul Church (Syrian Orthodox) - Antakya
Construction of the Aziz Paul Church at Hürriyet Avenue started 1860 until an earth quake destroyed the main building in 1872. Hence, the reconstruction ended again in 1900.

Having viewed this thread for the first time, I must say that I am greatly surprised by the Armenian presence in Istanbul. I'm not certain if there is still a large Armenian population there but it is sad to realize the plight they had to go through in the name of belief.

I've been told that most of eastern Turkey is scattered with old Churches attended by Armenians but are now all abandoned and crumbling. Dissapointing.

Officially, the number of Christians in Turkey is 155'608. But this is only the number of those Christian religions which are accepted officially by the Turkish governement. So, the governement lists only Greek, Armenian and Yazidi religions as forms of Christianity. Over 85% of those Christians live in the metropolitan area of Istanbul. Unfortunately, most got deported before the incorporation of the Turkish Republic in 1923.

There are so many Syrian Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox as well as Armenian Catholic churches in Eastern Turkey. I will try to find and post pictures of them. But it takes time.
