This building consists of three seperately-built structures. The Monastery of Christ Pantocrator, 'the Almighty', was founded by  Empress Irene, wife of John II Comnenus, some time after 1118, its church seen here on the left ( south ). Some time later John built a smaller church to the north, here on the right. Finally by 1136, the two churches were joined by a funerary chapel built between them whose crypt served as the imperial mausoleum. Converted into a mosque after the Ottoman Conquest.

... The structure has undergone restoration.
