Şişli Greek Orthodox Cemetery in Constantinople is the proof of the prosperous, cosmopolitan, and manorial bourgeoisie of the Hellenism of Constantinople.

The documentary begins with a panoramic view of Constantinople, the Ecumenical Patriarchate, the Theological School of Halki, the largest Greek schools and ends at the cemetery of Şişli, whose many parts have been completely renovated, such as the Holy Chapel of Peter and Paul, the ossuary, and of course many tombs and family cemeteries.

The documentary was made on the occasion of the completion of the maintenance and restoration of forty burial monuments in the cemetery. This important project was carried out by the Community of Stavrodromi with the blessings of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

The cemetery of Şişli is an open-air museum with masterpieces, honorary cenotaphs, from which the pilgrims can draw information about the history of our nation.
