My wife and I walked past the Column of Constantine during a 5-day visit to Istanbul.
Apparently, it is one of the most important examples of Roman art in Istanbul. However, it is now showing its age and is supported by numerous steel struts and bands.
Worth observing if in this part of Istanbul but I would not recommend going out of your way to see it.

It is amazing to see so many beautiful and mind shocking stuff in Istanbul especially one like this in the middle of the ottoman culture all the way from Roman Empire

The Column of Constantine is one of the most important examples of Roman art in Istanbul. The column is located on Yeniçeriler Caddesi in the eponymous neighborhood of Çemberlitaş, Fatih, central Istanbul, along the old Divan Yolu (the 'Road to the Imperial Council') between the Hippodrome of Constantinople (now Sultanahmet Square) and the Forum of Theodosius (now Beyazıt Square).

I initially had no idea about this location, as I stumbled upon it for the first time after returning from the grand bazaar. After returning home (Bangladesh), I enquired about this place and was quite surprised to know that I had encountered a structure of such historic value!

The cross was believed to save constantinople from all evil like earthquakes, invasion attacks, etc. Underneth the column there were rumors that the sacred cup, and dress of jesus christ was buried. Pope visited ghe column and a digging was made I remember, perhaps 30 yrs ago.ITS BELIEVED THAT THE WORLD WILL COME TO AN END WHEN THE COLUMN COLLAPSES DOWN!
