Very beautiful church, the octagonal shape is very obvious. It can be said that there are no tourists here. You can quietly appreciate the historical cultural buildings by yourself. The brickwork effect of the outer facade, while the whole is off-white inside.
Turkey🇹🇷·Istanbul—Take Pegasus Airlines from Izmir ✈️ Istanbul to the airport bus 🚌 to the tram 🚃 and arrive at the old city in the European area. Significantly increased crowds, streets full of restaurants and shops, unique modes of transportation, and high and low streets. Of course, there are also mosques that can be seen as far as the eye can see, all telling us a different Istanbul. In the evening, climbing on the roof of the hotel, the lights of the small Hagia Sophia Mosque are already on, very beautiful.
Hagia Sophia witnessed every major event on the road to the glory and decline of the empire. It was built in the time of Constantius II, the eldest son of Emperor Constantine. Later, it was destroyed by rioters and was rebuilt by Theodosius II. It is very beautiful and spectacular!
Aya Sofya (Aya Sofya) is a church built in the East Roman Empire during the period of the emperor Justinian (532 - 537) from the blue mosque. After the fall of the Byzantine Empire, the Church of Saint Sofia was transformed into a Turkish mosque dedicated to Allah. The Church of Saint Sofia is a religious museum shared by Christians and Muhammad.
In addition to various carvings, the interior decoration of Hagia Sophia also includes mosaics made of colored marble. It was not until the middle of the 9th century that the church reinterpreted and was willing to pay respect and worship to the portrait. This gradually resolved the disputes between the two factions. This day is also known as the "victory of orthodoxy". Grand celebration. However, the art of carving has never been recognized by the church.
