The ayazma of the church that was first founded in the period of Emperor Leon I (457-474) was used as a health center.

This region outside of the city became important after the church and ayasma were built. The church was repaired many times during Byzantine period and was reconstructed from its base in 1834 by Patriarchate Constantinos I.
