Bedestan (Old St. Nicolas Church)

Temple in Nicosia & Kyrenia, North Cyprus

Bedestan is a historical building in the Selimiye quarter of North Nicosia, located directly beside the Selimiye Mosque. The structure has a long and complicated history spanning more than one thousand years. Originally built as a church in about the sixth century, and expanded and rebuilt between the twelfth and sixteenth centuries, it was converted to a bedestan, a type of covered market, during the period of Ottoman rule. It is currently used as a cultural centre.
