One of the most prominent surviving churches in Ordu is the Church of Hypapante (Gr: Ναός της Υπαπάντης του Χρηστού, Trk: Taşbaşı kilisesi) which stands above the sea in the western area of the town. Hpapante is the Greek name for one of the two municipalities in Ordu; the other being the municipality of Saint George. The church was restored and is now being used as a museum.
