Church of St. George

Church of St. George is just opposite the Mar Girgis Metro station, along Sharia Mar Girgis. St. George is one of the region's most popular Christian saints, a Palestinian conscript in the Roman army and was executed in 303 AD for resisting Emperor Diocletian's decree forbidding the practice of Christianity. The Church of St. George dates from 1909.
