The District of Chrysopolitissa
The origin of the name "Chrysopolitissa" is due to the old notorious name of ancient citadel of Kition, which was preserved alive mainly in the tradition of the place. According to local tradition in the past, Chrysopolitissa with its inhabitants served as a monastery. The quarter was also known as Chryssopolis ‘golden town’ during Medieval times.
The temple of Chrysopolitissa is one of the most beautiful in Cyprus, wood-carved, fine art and gold-plated. It reminds the iconostasis of the 17th / 18th century, it was constructed though in the middle of the 19th century, as we know from an inscription that it was built in 1866.
The church of Panagia Chrysopolitissa is one of the most interesting of the Larnaka churches with the colonnades of its galleries and its tall and impressive bell tower, in particular, as a nice example of Cypriot architecture of the 18th and early 19th century. It is built in a rhythm in which some medieval architectural features survive and are unusually combined with future decorative elements. Today’s temple is one of the few of this kind in Cyprus, with the Holy Trinity and the Good Gate being on the southern aisle. The roof has crossbars and rests on columns that cross the center of the church. Along the southern side there is a porch resting on ancient marble columns.
Located on a hill at the corner of Archiepiskopou Kyprianou and Crysopolitissas streets, the Virgin Mary of Chrysopolitissa is a stone-built church that sits on the site of a prehistoric cemetery of the ancient town (12th-13th centuries BC). The church is dedicated to Virgin Mary of the ‘golden town’, given its name thanks to the rich tombs of the cemetery that were filled with gold jewellery.
