It’s probably not the Church of St Peter and St Mark but nobody agrees on an alternative. It’s a rather nice mosque right at the end of the Golden Horn walls near the Blachernae Palace (or what’s left of it). 41°02′18.96″N 28°56′38.40″E Apparently, a church was founded here in 458 but this is not it. The main structure seems to date from the late ninth century. Unusually, there is a tomb inside the mosque; that of Cabir, killed with the great Eyüp in the Arab siege of Constantinople in 668.


The building must have had a hefty reconstruction as the mihrab fits perfectly in the focus of the church. Still, it’s a nice place and the gardens are pleasant.
