Column of Constantine Tours

The Column of Constantine was steeped around 330 to the Forum of Constantine for the honor of Roman emperor Constantine the Great. For a while, it was the tallest column of all, - Trajan's Column and the Column of Marcus Aurelius- and occupies the second-highest hill of Istanbul that known as a 7 hills city… It has been known that there was an Apollon statue on the top of the column which is saluting the sun, then statues of Julianus and Theodosius and a cross were put on it. In the Ottoman period, the column was harmed in fire and earthquakes and have regenerated.

 

According to a myth, many holy relics brought from Jerusalem by, the mother of Emperor Constantine Helena were placed in a room under Çemberlitaş. Since 1985 Column of Constantine with other monuments in the Sultanahmet are listed in the Unesco World Heritage Site list.
