Church bell from the Aya Jorgi church, 19th century

This Greek-orthodox church was located in the district of Doğancı Mahallesi, on the south edge of Isparta town.

The figure on the church bell indicates that the church was not dedicated to St.George, Great-Martyr and Trophy-bearer (the one with the Dragon), but to Saint Gregory the Theologian, one of the so-called ‘Cappadocian Fathers’.
