In the optimism following Independence from the Moslem Ottomans there was a concerted programme of church building. This great construct was started in the mid 1840s and the interior was finalised in the early 1890s. Standing opposite provides a marvellous vista of the expansive edifice in pleasing hues of lightness. A double belfry bound a pediment of simplicity with only a circle of bas-reliefs at centre. Stepping inside, even though only in ambient light, was to see impressive and inspiring features. A vista along the nave, bordered by columns and arches, brings one to the wonderful iconostasis. Frescoes and icons are at the spiritual core of the tranquil extensive space.

Calm oasis in a bustling area of Athens filled with bars and cafes. Nice place to find respite from the buzz.

I came across this church during my walk of the Monastiraki neighborhood. Went inside and said my prayers after admiring the beauty of this church. I met a male employee and asked him about the name of the church. Thinking I might forget its name, he gladly wrote down the church's name in my piece of paper. Note: Taking pictures inside the church is not allowed!
