Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Very nice little church.
Don't come in the tourist season and bypass the set up market, too much "bazaar" in the vendors.
And the same with the so-called holy spring, no queue culture.

This is kept permanently locked with the keys held in the museum next door. A lovely building which has survived the various invasions. A very clean area around the cloisters sets it off nicely. Beyond the church construction it is utilised as an ikon museum. It is interesting to compare this to the collection at St Barnabas further to the East. Patron Saint of Tax Evasion is a new one on me.

Tres belle ancienne église orthodoxe qui serait le lieu où St Mamet a été enterré. A l'intérieur son cercueil suinte l'huile selon une légende entretenue par la voisinage. De très belles îcones très anciennes recouverte d'or sauf la figure de SYtMamet

When we arrived the church was locked so we visited the museum next door who provided someone to open the church.
The icos are beautiful as is the church. We visited by car and parked in the museum car park which is only a short walk away. The church has cloisters which offer shade if you are stood outside the church.The building is impressive enough and well maintained.
Whilst the Icon collection is not as extensive as the collection in the Church and Monastery of St Barnabas it is still a very magnificent collection of religious Icons, it's certainly worth taking your time to visit and take a look at skilled art and craftwork dating back to the 16th century.

Guzelyurt's showpiece is the attractive old monastery of St Mamas, which has been turned into an incon museum since 1974. The legend of St Mamas, the patron saint of tax avoiders, and his curious encounter with a lion is spread through a number of Cyprus churches bearing his name. But it is in this one his tomb can be found. And the richly-decorated interior, with its many icons gathered from other religious establishments on the island, is startlingly sumptuous, even though the building is small. The courtyard area is surrounded on two sides by attractive arched walkways.
Next door is the Archeological Museum, which has interesting artefacts unearthed at nearby Soli. Worth visiting

St Mamas schijnt met zijn sarcofaag door Vroege christenen vanuit Kappadocië hierheen te zijn gebracht. In 1974 is dit gebied Turks geworden. Na jaren verwaarlozing is deze kerk met EU-geld opgeknapt. Dat geld is goedbesteed - het resultaat is mooi. Het aanraken van de sarcofaag heeft voor wie erin gelooft een geneeskrachtige werking. Voor de zekerheid laten zieken bovendien hun lijdend lichaamsdeel bij de heilige achter in de vorm van een kaars - oren, babies, je ziet van alles.

7 tl entrance fee for the two sites: A museum & the church.
A Greek Orthodox Church full of icons & exceedingly ornate. Spectacular chandelier on a par with those at Versailles, giving out a beautiful quality of light.
Park your car at the Museum of Nature Antiquity next door. Ask for access to the church & they will take you over there & open it for you. Museum is worth a look especially if you know your birds.

Были в археологическом музее и церкви Св.Мамас в октябре текущего года. Один билет дает право посещения и музея и церкви. В музее собраны достаточно интересные экспонаты из древнегреческих городов, таких как Соли, здесь и амфоры, и драгоценности тех времен. Мы ходили без экскурсии, но везде, как обычно в музее, все можно прочитать :-) Церковь Св.Мамас построена в Византийском стиле, внутри полностью сохранился иконостас, роспись на стенах и много на стенах икон, по-видимому привезенных из других церквей. Особая энергетика и атмосфера в таких местах, это не просто музей, а православная церковь, хотя в данный момент она не действующая, но судя по тому, что стоят свечи, которые периодически кто-то из верующих все равно зажигает, для верующих людей это святое место. Очень интересная коллекция икон. В таких случаях, хочется выразить благодарность за то, что сохранили и немного жаль, что в силу недофинансирования чувствуется некая неухоженность. Советую для посещения!

St Mamas, is one of the most beautiful and best kept of Orthodox churches that are preserved as Icon Museums. Built on the site of an Aphrodite temple, it was constructed during the 18th century AD, on the site of an early Byzantine church, and is maintained by the Antiquities Department of North Cyprus.

We visited Guzelyurt to see this church while on holiday in Northern Cyprus. There is a car park near by but it is possible to park in front of the church with shops, cafes and toilets nearby. We parked near the Baklava shop – delicious – many variations.

A reasonable entrance fee covers both the church and the adjacent Guzelyurt Museum of Archaeology.

There was a helpful custodian who gave us an insight into the church and showed us the 'hole in the tomb'.

The church has a central nave, apse, and two side aisles A dome rises above the nave at the altar end. Columns are decorated with carvings, vine leaves and some rather heavy looking faces.
There are two marble pillars on either side of the Holy Door .
There is a magnificent crystal chandelier that hangs in the centre of the apse with hundreds of droplets.

This is but one of several churches on the island dedicated to St. Mamas around whom many legends have arisen.

One legend was that Mamas was a young holy man who lived in a cave outside the town limits during the Roman occupation. This was a time when all citizens were required to pay taxes. Mamas pleaded poverty and said he had nothing but the clothes he wore and the food given to him by charitable people from the town for whom he prayed in return.
The Roman authorities arrested him as his plea was not accepted.
On the way to town Mamas saw a lamb being attacked by by a lion. Mamas scooped up the lamb, jumped onto the lion's back and continued on his way to face his punishment. The court was astonished by what had taken place and decided he must be a truly holy man. His punishment was withdrawn and exemption from paying taxes, granted. So, Mamas became the patron saint of tax avoiders!

The other legend says Mamas was killed somewhere in Anatolia and was placed by his family in a stone coffin, aided by Jesus Christ! The coffin was said to have been swept away into the sea and washed up on the shores of Guzelyurt Bay.
A local farmer, harnessed it to two oxen and pulled it along as far as they could manage. A church was then built around it.

The marble sarcophagus of St. Mamas can be found, forming part of the north wall of the church. The lid of the tomb has been pierced, allegedly by someone who thought the tomb contained treasure. The hole created, now oozes a liquid that is said to have curative properties. Around the tomb you can see votive offerings in the shape of ears and tongues because St. Mamas is not only the Patron Saint of tax avoiders, but also those suffering with ear, nose and throat infections!

We enjoyed our visit to St Mamas, as also the Archaelogy Museum.

The Monastery buildings you see are now used for business purposes.
