This area is dominated by the lofty Fatih Camii, once the site of the Church of the Holy Apostles, where the most powerful of the Byzantine emperors were buried. In the surrounding areas, the remains of what was once a high density of monasteries occasionally surface. The enormous Pantocrator Monastery is being mercilessly restored. There are two churches that retain their Byzantine character – the forbidding Gül Camii, and the peaceful Eski Imaret Camii.
