Saint Iskhyrun (Aba Iskhyrun) is a latin word that consists of two parts, (ABA) means father, and (Iskhyrun) means Strong.
The Church is accessed from the south side of the Khurus of St. Bishoy church.
The church has a sanctuary dated to the fourth century, though it is a parekklesion of the ancient church of St. Bishoy and was separated at the fourteenth century.
The relics of the holy martyr Saint Iskhyrun are kept under the alter.
Pope Benjamin brought his relics from St. Samuel Monastery in the fourteenth century, because it was an isolated monastery that was attacked by thieves and mercenaries.
The church has one sanctuary with an ancient veil dated to the eleventh century.
