Saints Constantine and Helen Church, Sinasos, Cappadocia

St Constantine and St Helen Church in the small town of Sinasos, Cappadocia was built during the reign of Sultan Ahmet I (1729), whilst it was icon painted during the era of Abdul Medjit I and Bishop Paisios through the donations of the local Orthodox faithful. It was repaired in 1850. Unfortunately, today there are no icons on the walls, due to many reasons, such as covering them and looting, as has been the case in most, if not all the Orthodox Churches, in Asia Minor. Nevertheless, it is one of the prevalent sites in Sinasos, being a large Church building.
