The Exi Marmara district is located in the area of the Byzantine Exokionion inside the Theodosian walls. During the Ottoman period it was mainly populated by Greek-Orthodox residents. Its parish church was that of the Virgin Mary Gorgoepekoos. Societies and associations were estabilshed in the district during the 19th century. The community declined in the 20th century. Nowadays no Christians inhabit the district.
