Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The ruins of the Byzantine Church are adjacent to and south of the Hieropolis Archaeology Museum on the west side of the ruin. The church is impressive in size, but unfortunately little restoration has been done. A few walls and arcades are visible, and there is an interpretive sign near the ruins. Christianity started to be openly practiced in this area in the 4th century. Byzantine emperor Justinian raised the bishop of Hieropolis to the rank of metropolitan in 531, and parts of the Roman baths were transformed to a Christian basilica. The city flourished during the Byzantine period and was an important center for Christians attracted by the healing powers of the thermal springs. Pilgrims also came to visit the alleged site of the martyrdom of St. Philip at the top of the hill. According to legend, Phillip was crucified upside-down; others say he was hung upside down by his ankles from a tree. Artifacts in the Archaeological Museum next door provides some insight into life in Hieropolis in the Byzantine period.

Ancient city of Hierapolis is huge and since most people only assign a single day to Pamukkale (some even do a day trip), it's pretty difficult to walk so much to cover all the sites in Hierapolis. If you have been to ancient Greeko Roman cities in different parts of the world and you are short on time then you may skip this church.

Instead, spend more time at travertines and thermal pools which are more unique experiences. Also, check out the Amphitheatre.

While cruising around Hierapolis it is fun exploring all the places inside. This is a fairly well kept church worth seeing along the way.

If you have travelled and seen a lot of greco roman sites, this Hierapolis will not do anything for you. But as we are all there to visit the hot water springs and Hierapolis is connected to it, you might as Well have a stroll and see Some graves and remains of buildings. Don't go there with a tour! All information is on signboards to explain you what you see, our guide didnt add much information to it. And as always: tours are overpriced. Everything is in walkable distance if you take the city centre gate.

We walked from the bottom of the hill up the path across the bridge and up the steps to see first the tomb of St Phillip and then on to the chruch of St Phillip. This church is said to be built in the sight that Phillip the Apostle was martyred. It is an amazing walk and the ruins are worth every step it takes to get there. You can access this couch by a small bus infrint of the pool and it is not a difficult walk back along the road. It does take a good hour round trip if you walk it but it is so worth it. The views from the top are amazing.
If you get to Hierapolis then take the time to visit this church

The remains of this christian Bizantine Church are very well kept, there is an information plate very close to the entrance of the archelogical remains. The history of the whole Hierapolis site is extensive and happens under many different governants and religions. We traveled by car to the top of the place very close to the church and then we explored the site by foot downwards towards the pools.

How on earth did they manage to carve, transport and build such massive blocks of stone into such a wonderful building! I hope it remains standing, it does look a little precarious! Now fenced off.
