Ankara's Holy Places

Ankara Synagogue


Ankara, due to its location, was rather a big village in early 1900s and therefore it is natural that it does not have even one old church. The Embassies moved from Istanbul to Ankara prior its assignment as the new capital of the Republic and overcome their worship need by founding their own churches.

Today most of the churches of town are in the gardens of the embassies. The only Synagogue of Ankara is open at mass hours and ceremonies. The mosques of the 14th and 15th century built by Seljuk and Ottoman Empire are still open to worship.
