Hagia Sophia Museum

Hagia Sophia Museum

4.6/51,130 Reviews
Church
Business hours TBA (Local time)
The Hagia Sophia Museum was originally an Eastern Orthodox cathedral in the Byzantine Empire. Its construction began in 537 AD at the beginning of the Middle Ages and then converted into a mosque during occupation by the Ottoman Empire. It has now been secularized and converted into Turkey’s most visited museum, with preserved murals covering the plaster walls. Most have been restored to resemble their original appearance. The building is a true spectacle featuring the overlap of Christianity and Islam, and is a very special site well worth visiting.

Situated on the bank of the Bosphorus Strait is one of Istanbul's landmarks, Sultan Ahmed Mosque. It features a magnificent and eye-catching, enormous round dome. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque, was built under the rule of Sultan Ahmed during the Ottoman Empire. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque derives its name from the more than 20,000 blue ceramic tiles used to decorate its interior. These exquisite blue ceramic tiles are one of the mosque's highlights. The tiles are engraved with rich patterns and Arabic inscriptions, which are the perfect embodiment of the unique features of Islamic art.

4.3/598 Reviews
Church
Museum
Open from 9:00am-5:00pm (Local time)
A visit to Chora Church is something for the more adventurous traveler. Located in the Edirnekapi neighborhood just inside the Theodosian Walls, you can get here by bus or taxi but don't wander too far, because it is not the safest neighborhood. The visit is still well worth the effort. Chora Church houses what is arguably the most extensive and best preserved collection of Byzantine frescoes in Turkey. The walls, domes and archways contain elaborate and colorful renderings of saints, Old Testament Patriarchs and bible scenes. The most moving of these may be the Anastasis--a depiction of Christ rescuing Adam and Eve from perdition.
