St. Johns Armenian Church

St. John’s Church. This church was originally built of timber in Sarayiçi, Gedikpaşa and inaugurated by Patriarch Stephen Zakarian III on 6 December 1827. On 18 December 1849 it burned down. On 13 June 1871 Sultan Abdülaziz gave permission for its reconstruction and on 27 June 1876 a new church was opened. It was later repaired and re-opened on 26 March 1895. It later fell into disrepair, was repaired, but suffered from another fire. Two repairs later we are in 1986 with a retiled, repainted and replastered church, reopened by Patriarch Shnork Kalusdian in a magnificent ceremony.
