Ahrida Synagogue

Founded in the Byzantine period, the synagogue is the oldest synagogue in İstanbul and is still open to worship today. Those wishing to visit the synagogue, which has a congregation of approximately 500 people, are allowed to visit in advance by appointment and only through tour agencies. The building, which was built in Baroque style, was devastated by the great İstanbul fire of 24 July 1660. It was renovated on May 10, 1694, and renovated between 1709 and 1995 and has gained its present appearance. Buses 55T and 99A are available for those who want to go to the synagogue in the Balat district of İstanbul. Address: Gevgili street / Balat
