Inside the Chora Church
Inside the Chora Church
The Chora Church is not as grand in stature as some of the other Byzantine churches of Istanbul, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in the exquisite beauty of its interior. The walls and the domes are ornamented with breathtaking mosaics. These pictures are very alive and they portray the lives of Jesus and Mary, the death of Mary. The fresco of the Last
Judgement belonging to this church is on exhibit at the Hagia Sophia.
