 Sfakia-Chora Sfakion, South-West Crete   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The district of Sfakia, with its main village Chora Sfakion, is a very special part of Crete, far away from the mass tourism of the north coast.
The rough and dramatic landscape of this area is softened by olive trees, tamarisk and pine trees and the gentle sound of sheep and goats’ bells.
Chora Sfakion is perfectly situated for day trips into the nearby mountains or along the coast by boat.

However, CHORA BATIR is not primarily a report of the conquest or of relations with Muscovy, neither is it a chronicle.
CHORA BATIR is a dastan, an ornate oral history which embodies the essential issues of Central Asian identity.
Since the majority of the events related in CHORA BATIR generally took place in the first half of the 16th century, we must conclude that Gazi Alim was referring to the Tatars, whose tribal confederation included the Naymans from earlier times.

 CHORA: Intervals in the Philosophy of Architecture
CHORA (the Greek word for "space"), is devoted to exploring the potential of architecture beyond conventional aesthetic and technological reductions.
CHORA offers a space to meditate on the possibility of such an architecture, capable of both respecting cultural differences and acknowledging the globalization of technological culture.
While the main philosophical framework for CHORA stems from phenomenology and hermeneutic ontology, the architectural pursuits in this collection could be placed generally in the broad context of European philosophy, which demands a fundamental redefinition of thought and action, and a substantial rethinking of traditionally accepted values.

 Bystory: Chora
From a Platonic viewpoint, the chora is the space where the philosopher's eternal truths are stored, a metaphysical memory bank, and the topos is the situated, literal place the sophists use as memory aids.
The project is then to replace topos itself (not just one particular setting but place as such) with chora wherever the former is found in the trivium.
"Chora receives everything or gives place to everything, but Plato insists that in fact it has to be a virgin place, and that it has to be totally foreign, totally exterior to anything that it receives.

The Monastery of Chora was thus named, as it lied outside of the city walls built by the Emperor Constantine.
After the conquest of Istanbul by the Turks in 1453, the Chora Monastery was converted into a mosque in 1511 by Atik Ali Paþa, the Grand Vizier of Sultan Bayazýt II.
No interference was made to the architecture, except the addition of a minaret, and the name of the Chora monastery became Kariye since then, and it became known as the Kariye Mosque.

 ICA/UT: Chersonesos Chora Excavations
The agricultural hinterland (chora) of the Greek city of Chersonesos, like that of many Greek colonies, was divided into lots for the farms and vineyards of the colonists.
This division seems to have taken place about a hundred years after the establishment of the city and left visible marks on the landscape, in the form of roads, stone division walls, vineyard planting walls, and the farmsteads themselves.
These new approaches and questions were put to practice in the course of geophysical prospecting and excavation at a site called Bezymyannaya, at the furthest edge of the Greek chora.
