This was the second most important church to the eastern orthodox church and it was the second largest in Constantinople after the Hagia sophia during its time. This is an speculative reconstruction build because of how little concrete information is available on it.This is how it probably looked in the 4th century during the time of justinian. All the interior frescos are based on the basilica san marco in venice as they were originally based on the ones in the church of the holy apostles. Dimensions were loosely based on the basilica San Marco in Venice,Saint-Front in Périgeux and
Basilica of St. John in Ephesus as they were all based on this church.

this was built feb 22- march 1 2017 took a couple major redesigns because of conflicting info but i got it down.

hope you enjoy it this and that it inspires other people to start building more eastern roman/byzantine builds.
the download is going to have a chunk of the gul camii im building next to it

alot of the information came from this site http://www.doaks.org/resources/online-exhibits/holy-apostles/the-holy-apostles and http://www.byzantium1200.com/apostles.html

Well done, materials on the interior are a bit questionable but overall a very faithfull reconstruction.
