Istanbul city & travel guides. The Chora Museum, one of the top places to visit in Istanbul. Video by YourIstanbul

The Chora Museum (Kariye Müzesi in Turkish language) was a church (replaced with a chapel) built during the Emperor Justinian’s rule. The mosaics and frescoes at the Chora Museum are the best examples of the 14th century Byzantium painting art. They contain scenes of lives of Jesus and Virgin Mary.

The church converted to a mosque after the conquest of Constantinople is one of the top museums to visit in Istanbul today.
