The centre of life for the ordinary citizen of Constantinople. The churches are more modest than those around the major palaces near Aya Sofya. The intact ones are the marble-lined Kalenderhane, the doll’s house of Bodrum Camii and the unreconstructed, dirty-old-man of Constantinople churches, Vefa Camii. The rest have disappeared under development, especially of the ever-metastasising Istanbul University. It may have been better if the remains of the massive Church of St Polyeuktos had never resurfaced.
