The plethora and variety
of religious buildings and ancient shrines will strike
any visitor to Turkey. There are temples dedicated to
ancient gods, churches of many denominations, synagogues
and of course mosques.
As civilisations succeeded each other
over a period of 8000 years, they each left their religious
legacy and, after the monotheistic domination of Anatolia,
Islam, Christianity and Judaism co-existed in harmony.
