Religious monuments

The Great Temenos

  Large, unfinished rectangular building, built of well-cut blocks, with a monumental entrance on the west side. Instead of built vaults it has a pyramidal roof of lead leaves on a wooden frame, which stands on four built pillars.
  The temenos was founded near the road linking Traianoupolis and Adrianople, in the years of Mohammed I (1413-1421).
  The lead leaves of the roof have been replaced, and the structure has been reinforced with a metal tower inside. The wall paintings have been cleared. Today the monument is used as a storeroom for the archaeological finds from the area of Didymoteichon.
