The Magnificent Church of Sant'AntonioÔŤ¬­čöö//─░hti┼čaml─▒ Kilise Sant'Anton─▒oÔŤ¬­čöö

Hello my Hive friends, I went to Taksim the other day. If you remember, I told you about Taksim. I also visited the Church of Sant'Antonio that day. This church is one of the biggest churches in Istanbul. It is located in the middle of Taksim, next to Galatasaray High School. The church has a remarkable feature with its architectural structure, color and miniature sculptures in its garden. When you first enter from the garden of the church, there is a painting that says the Hymn of Creation. In this painting are written prayers to the Creator God. There is an angel statue on the side of the painting, I don't know the message the statue wants to give, I couldn't translate the text on it, but this is Hz. He thought it might be Jesus. After a few steps, there was a covered room. Inside was a baby, a woman, a man, and a donkey. I heard a few people talking next door. They made this room for the Christmas service. After examining these sculptures, I saw another sculpture just to the right of the door while I was going inside. Statue of Pope XXIII. It was a statue of Jean (Loannes).

Merhabalar Hive arkada┼člar─▒m, ge├žen g├╝n Taksim'e gidip gezmi┼čtim. Size de Taksim'den bahsetmi┼čtim hat─▒rlarsan─▒z. O g├╝n Sant'Anton─▒o Kilisesi'ni de ziyaret ettim. Bu kilise ─░stanbul'un en b├╝y├╝k kiliselerinden birisidir. Taksim'in orta yerinde Galatasaray Lisesi'nin yan taraf─▒nda bulunmaktad─▒r. Kilise'nin mimari yap─▒s─▒ ile, rengi ile bah├žesindeki minyat├╝r heykeller ile dikkat ├žekici bir ├Âzelli─či var. Kilisenin bah├žesinden ilk i├žeri girildi─činde Yarat─▒l─▒┼č ─░lahisi yazan bir tablo bulunuyor. Bu tabloda Yaratan ─░lah'a dualar yaz─▒yor. Tablonun yan taraf─▒ndan melek heykeli bulunmakta, heykelin vermek istedi─či mesaj─▒ bilmiyorum, ├╝zerindeki yaz─▒y─▒ da ceviremedim fakat bu bana Hz. ─░sa olabilece─čini d├╝┼č├╝nd├╝rd├╝. Bir ka├ž ad─▒m att─▒ktan sonra ├╝st├╝ kapal─▒ oda vard─▒. ─░├žerisinde bir bebek, kad─▒n, erkek ve bir tane de e┼ček vard─▒. Yan tarafta bir ka├ž ki┼či konu┼čurken duymu┼čtum. Noel ayini i├žin bu oday─▒ yapm─▒┼člar. Bu heykelleri inceledikten sonra i├žeri girecekken tam kap─▒n─▒n sa─č─▒nda birtane daha heykel g├Ârd├╝m. Heykel Papa XXIII. Jean (Loannes) heykeliymi┼č.

After examining the garden of the church and walking around, I went inside. Normally, it was forbidden to take photos and videos, but when I saw that others were taking it, of course, I took photos and videos. Religious music was playing in the background, not too loud. The atmosphere was filled with the scent of incense and candles. There were many miniature statues, candles on the walls, seats for people to sit during worship. The interior of the church is full of tall columns and there are wreaths and patterns on all of them. The interior looked very magnificent and ostentatious, the part that caught my attention the most was Hz. It was the statue symbolizing the crucifixion of Jesus by hanging from the ceiling of the church with a rope, it was very meaningful when combined with the lights, paintings and many statues on the back.

Kilisenin bah├žesini inceleyip gezdikten sonra i├žeri girdim. Normalde foto─čraf video ├žekmek yasakt─▒ fakat ba┼čkalar─▒n─▒n ├žekti─čini g├Âr├╝nce bende foto─čraf, video ├žektim tabiki. Arka fonda ├žok y├╝ksek olmayan dini m├╝zikler ├žal─▒yordu. Ortam─▒ t├╝ts├╝ ve mum kokusu kaplam─▒┼čt─▒. Bir s├╝r├╝ minyat├╝r heykeller, duvarlar─▒nda hep mumlar, ibadet esnas─▒nda insanlar─▒n oturmas─▒ i├žin koltuklar bulunuyordu. Kilisenin i├ži uzunca s├╝tunlarla dolu ve hepsinin ├╝zerinde ├želenkler desenler mevcut. ─░├žerisi ├žok ihti┼čaml─▒, g├Âsteri┼čli g├Âr├╝n├╝yordu benim en ├žok dikkatimi ├žeken k─▒s─▒m Hz. ─░sa' n─▒n kilisenin tavan─▒ndan iple sark─▒t─▒larak carm─▒ha gerildi─čini simgeleyen heykeldi, ─▒┼č─▒klar─▒n, tablolar─▒n ve arka taraf─▒nda bulunan birs├╝r├╝ heykellerle birle┼čtirilince ├žok anlaml─▒ duruyordu.

I have visited and seen the church before, but it was not this magnificent. The Church of Sant'Antonio seemed much different and beautiful to me. The Church of Sant'Antonio is among the lists that I definitely recommend to be among the places to visit in Istanbul. See you in my other pir post, stay safe. ­čîŞ

Ben daha ├Ânceden de kilise gezdim, g├Ârd├╝m fakat bu kadar ihti┼čaml─▒ de─čildi. Sant'Anton─▒o Kilisesi bana ├žok daha farkl─▒ ve g├╝zel geldi. ─░stanbul' da gezilecek yerler aras─▒nda olmas─▒n─▒ mutlaka tavsiye etti─čim listeler aras─▒nda art─▒k Sant'Anton─▒o Kilisesi de yer al─▒yor. Di─čer pir postumda g├Âr├╝┼čmek ├╝zere sa─čl─▒cakla kal─▒n. ­čîŞ
