Orthodox Churches

 Haghia Yorgi Fener Greek Orthodox Patriarchate Church
This Greek Orthodox Church and the building houses the Greek Partriarchate on its yard overlooking the Golden Horn in Fener. Although both buildings have unimpressive exteriors it includes a golden patriarchal throne believed to be from the Byzantine era, three very rare mosaic icons, a pillar accepted as the one on which the Christ was tied and whipped and coffins of three saints.

Saint Mary of the Mongols Greek Church
A tall rose-red church standing on the hill of Haghia Yorgi in Fener. It is the only Byzantine sanctuary in Istanbul that has been under continuous Greek ownership since before the Turkish conquest. Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror's imperial decree avoided converting this church to a mosque. A copy of this decree is still in the church. The church gets its name from the illegitimate Byzantine Princess Mary who married Mongol Khan. After her husband's assassination she returned to Constantinople and had a church built (1282) and lived there as a nun. The best mosaic of the church is the one describing Theodokos Pammakaristos. Open every day from 9:00 to 16:00.

Church of St Nicholas
This is a small pine-walled church just above the Golden Horn. It holds special services every December 6th celebrating the saint's birthday (born in Patara on Turkey's Mediterranean coast).

St Stephen of the Bulgars (in Fener)
It is an impressive and astonishing slate-gray Neo-Gothic church near Haghia Yorgi in Fener. It was built in a waterside park on the Golden Horn in 1871 to celebrate the independence of Bulgaria. It is an all-iron church due to the soft characteristic of the ground. Armenian Hovsep Aznavour of İstanbul was responsible for the project. As a result of an international contest the prefabricate sections of the church were produced in Vienna and carried to İstanbul by ships via Danube and Black Sea, and reassembled here.
