Religious Sites in Turkey

The lands where today`s Turkey is, the Anatolian peninsula, has played a central role in the birth and development of many religions. You can find temples built for Apollo, Aphrodite, Zeus and other Greek gods, you can follow the evolution of religions in history looking at the religious artifacts of the Anatolian civilizations, and you can admire the statues of old Anatolian gods on Mount Nemrut.

Biblical sites are also plentiful in Turkey. The house of Virgin Mary, church of St. Nikolai, birthplace of St. Paul, the great Hagia Sophia and Ephesus are just a few to name. Being the capital of the Muslim world for centuries, Turkey also has many Islamic artifacts and the best examples of mosque architecture.

Visitors go to Ephesus for pilgrimage, follow the footsteps of St. Paul in his holy journey through Anatolia, or see the holy artifacts from prophet Muhammed in Topkapi Palace. In Istanbul, many old and new Muslim, Christian and Jewish temples stand together.
