    First church, then Mosque and now museum. The Hagia Sophia is the highlight of an Istanbul trip. A true eye candy, there is so much to discover. Painted Christian symbols and saints that reappear. Hundreds of prayer rugs and chandeliers from the Thousand and One Nights. Come, see, be astonished.

    The Haghia Sophia is a great example of the respect of other religions and that at a time when it was not commonplace to have so much vision.

    Hagia Sophia is a former Orthodox church from Bizantine times, used as a mosque in Ottoman times, then until recently as a museum, now used as a mosque again. Close to Sultan Ahmet and Yerebatan Sarnıcı.
