Somewhat greener and overgrown than existing pictures depict, at first I did not think you could get inside the walled and railings area, you can, the entrance is on the pedestrianised street. Nice enough. Won’t bother to return, although I did in the event to see how it looked all lit up. Because I said hello to one of the local strays she took the position of my guide bless her.

In the centre of Modern day Akhisar are the archaeological remains of Thyatira. Among the ruins is a basilica dating from 2AD. In some places it is preserved to a height of 4 meters. There are also columns and arches from an ancient portico dating from about the 4th century.
Thyatira is the location of the 4th letter written to the church from the book of revelations.
The site is easy to walk and cost 5 turkish lira to enter. They have a little Boucher written in English that relates to the 7 churches worth reading.

These Greek ruins are really interesting and I love that you can walk and climb freely here. They have a brochure in English that explains Thyateria as the cradle of Christianity. We also saw a turtle living here :).

one of the seven churches of apocalypse. in the city of Thyatira or before Aspro Kastro = Beyaz Kale (white castle, hence -sort of- Akhisar). totally collapsed two times because of earthquakes, built three times. the house I grew up was two hundred meters from this ancient structure, however we really did not know exactly its meaning. see this place...

We came here on a 7 cities of the Bible tour. Not much has been excavated, most of the ruins are under the current city. But it was a must for us, our granddaughter is named after Lydia, who was from here. They have a bunch of tortoises who live here among the ruins.

Thyatira was the center of the purple cloth trade during the first century AD and one of the apocalyptic churches mentioned in the Book of Revelation. The “Jezebel” of Revelation resided in this city. As an historical site, it is rather underwhelming though new excavations might provide some more interesting finds in the future.

One to tick off on a tour of seven churches of Revelation but there is little to see of the biblical city of Thyatira as much is under the modern city of Akhisar. What remains is in a central city location in one more square. Renovation work is underway so entry is not possible for now but all cn be seen through the bordering railings.
It lacks the size and atmosphere of other biblical sights in this area of Turkey.

One of the seven churches of Asia Minor. The home of Lydia who provided for Paul and Silas during their missionary journey. There's a few ruins preserved and you can walk around it pretty easily. It's in the center of town.
