Different Believes and Faiths

Istanbul has become a city where various religions have been practiced together for centuries. It is said that there have been no problems among people living together with different believes. In Hıdrellez, people had all together tied their wishes to the rose branch. In the old times, Muslim kids had sometimes taken the cross out of the water.  

Rituals in pray houses still continue today according to believes of everyone, just as they did for centuries. While people perform the salaat at mosques, services are held in churches. Istanbul is still authentic with all its differences and unity of religions.
