There are several Orthodox churches in Karaköy. This building, which dates from the 19th century, is now occupied by the Turkish Orthodox Patriarchate, founded in 1922, which broke away from the Greek Orthodox Church in 1924.
View at the rear of the church, looking south along Kara Ali Kaptan Sokağı towards Mumhanesi Caddesi.
