Istanbul Big Princes Island May 2014 6561.jpg

view map

Inside the Ayia Yorgi (St. George, in Greek: Άγιος Γεώργιος) church. The Strolling Through Istanbul guide claims it is "recent", so no ancient history, though the notice claims a monastery was started here in 963. The same notice describes its destruction in 1302.

I guess this is the miraculous icon.
