  • A small church, like all Christian-almost not visible, but the place is signed. Was built in 5 century. In 473 g. was transported here from Jerusalem Omophorion of the Virgin Mary and Menno here whacky Andrew saw the Virgin, raskinuvshuju its cover, protecting the faithful. Since then, and there was the feast of the intercession of the Virgin. In 1434 the Church Blachernitissa Dame burned in 19. Greek community on the site of the ruins of the old church built a new building is more than modest. There remained the Holy source. The current church is open to visit.

  • To tell you the truth, when planning a trip to Istanbul I haven't thought a lot about visiting holy places, but the Lord intends for us all. Miracle happened in my life. I believe that I have been able to in the great feast of the Virgin get into the temple where the Holy Blessed Andrew prayed for the protection of Constantinople, at the place where was the mother of God herself with angels and covered Omorfom, defending from the enemies, the residents of Istanbul, while Constantinople is a miracle. Wonder what for us newcomers from Russia have opened the relics of St. Euphemia's Basilica Vsehval'noj that we could kiss the relics and pray. Thanks for the servants of the Ecumenical Patriarchate Istanbul, father Ambrose. We venerated the shrines, miraculous icons and relics of the Saints, who are in the Church of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

  • Open daily 7 days a week till 16.30. Previously there was the Church of the mother of God of Blachernai, measuring 20 to 40 m. It was rebuilt several times, once in 1434, it accidentally torched boys Paleologi already did not have funds for reconstruction. In 19 century Greek community bought land, built in 1867 the chapel of the Holy source. Here was stored with 438g Riza (stolen Galvinom and Kandidom a Jewess in Nazareth), with 439g of our Lady of blachernae, Omophorion and part of a belt of Virgin Mary (discovered in the tomb of the Virgin). Miracles:-"ordinary miracle" Friday at dusk coverlet on the icon of the mother of God pripodnimalos′. -saving cities in 626, 718, 864, 926gg)-hence the feast of the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Icon in 1653g presented to Tsar Alexei Mihajloviu and kept in the Tretyakov Gallery.
