Add Comment to Hagia Sophia
Date visited
A Christian Church constucted in 537 AD and converted to a mosque in the 13 century and later deconsecrated as a museum by Ataturk in 1935, is certainly a sight to be seen.

The name, Hagia Sophia means "Holy Wisdom". There is an amazing collection of mosaic murals within the hagia.

Please add a photo of this most magnificent building. I don't know what happened to the one I took.

The dome has a diameter of 31 meters (102 feet) and is 56 meters high.
