Chora Museum

Chora Museum
 The Chora Museum was built in Byzantine time and was a church before fall of Constantinople. After fall of Constantinople the church was converted to a mosque. It became a museum in 1948.

 It is one of the latest examples of Byzantine art. There are interesting paintings on mosaics of Chora. Glasses of Hellenistic period was used on production of Chora so it has a different art style.

Actually the museum wasn't a museum but the mosaics was appeared and the Chora became a museum. The Chora became famous when the mosaics appeared. 300.000 visitors visited the Chora in 2014.
