Church of the Dormition of Our Lady

 

 

The Dormition Abbey was built when Kaiser Willem II had been able to acquire the site from the Sultan in 1898 and in 1908 the Dormition Basilica was consecrated. The lovely mosaic floor has three interlocking circles in the middle as a symbol of the Trinity.
