The Chapel of St. Mary of Vlachernae

The chapel was established within the church when it bacame the Greek Orthodox church of St. Ambrosios and St. Stylianos.

As the building was honouring the Saint Mary, the Mother of God when built, this had to be incorporated, hence we dedicated a small part of the Church as a chapel under the name of "St.Mary of Vlachernae". Vlachernae, modern name Ayvansaray, is a place near the Golden Horn and Bosphorus in Istanbul, where a Shrine is built on top of the original Byzantine Church which was burnt down and rebuilt a couple of times over the years.
