İstanbul | Hagia Sophia

WI_tr030.jpg

Mosaic in the interior of this ancient building which reflects the diverse history of Istanbul: since its completion in 537 it has served as a Christian, Greek Orthodox, and Roman Catholic church until 1453, then as imperial mosque until 1931, as a museum from 1935 to 2020 and since then, as a mosque again.
