Istanbul's Sephardic Jewish community dates from 1492 and even earlier but this, the Ashkenazi Synagogue, served the community of European Jews.It's a great old building, but because of security concerns, you can't get inside without clearance from Turkey's Grand Rabbinate, a few blocks away in Beyoglu near Tünel Square.
Neve Shalom towards the end of the 1930's the jewish population on the district of Pera and Galata increased so much that the need for a new synagogue became imminent.
A glorious example of the rich cultural life of Turkish Jews, the Ahrida has its rightful place among major synagogues of the world.The oldest of Istanbul's 16 synagogues in use today, located in the neighborhood of Balat (Istanbul), the Ahrida dates from the early 15th century.

Built on the site of an older tower in the 14th-15th centuries, the Galata Tower offers the best view of the Golden Horn, Old Istanbul, the entrance to the Bosphorus and the Asian shore. Originally known as the Tower of Christ.
