Surp Hıreşdagabet Armenian Church, Balat Quick Guide

Of Balat’s several synagogues, the Ahrida is by far the oldest, with foundations dating back to the early 15th century. Named after the town in Macedonia from where a large number of the Romaniote population had previously migrated, the synagogue was later assimilated by the Sephardic community from Spain. Most visitors only ever see the front gate of this building which was restored in 1992, as permission to enter must be obtained from the Chief Rabbinate in Beyoğlu.
