View looking south down the 195 ft. [60 m.] long narthex.
Note the three largest doors just to the left of center of the image. These lead into the main nave of the church. The center and largest of the doors, is called the “Imperial Gate” that was used only by the Emperor and the Patriarch.
Note also the marble panels that cover the walls.
