Photographer's Note

Istanbul, with its centuries old history, gave place to almost all religions.
In almost every part of the city you can find within the same area a church, a synagogue and a mosque .
Many of the centuries olds.

Here the altar of a Greek Orthodox Church in the city's European part.

Unlike in other Christian Churchs, the Greek Orthodox discipline helds the liturgy behind of this richly decorated altar galled "iconastasis" .
