In 327, Helena, the mother of the Byzantine Emperor, remains in Konya during a cross-seeking journey to Jerusalem. Various elements of Christian culture, such as carving temples, are very impressed her. He wants a sanctuary built on top of that. On top of this she wants to build a sanctuary . This is how the construction of the Aya-Elena Church, which has been standing in Konya for centuries, begins. Four of the openings of the dome of Aya Eleni Church, standing on four feet designed as windows while the other four contains St. Mary and Apostles. Although it has been repaired during the centuries managed to survive in close proximity to its original. These pictures reached today almost intact. At the top of this section, with 8 openings the picture of Jesus Christ can also be seen in very good condition. A large number of pictures can also be seen in the other transition elements of the dome. The visual atmosphere, which is in good condition, takes those who saw it back to centuries ago.

    Gördüğüm en güzel restore edilmiş ve korunmakta olan kilisedir. Sanırım hala ibadete açık ve dinini yaşayan Rumlar burayı çok güzel şekilde koruyor.
