What people are saying:

As it is common is Istanbul's history to turn many churches into mosques this is again a similar case of a church (St. Theodosia) turning into a mosque. It actually still remains in the shape of a cross when viewed from the top. The Gul Mosque which translates into the Rose mosque was decorated with lots of flowers, as the legend recounts, when the Ottoman entered the city of Istanbul in the honor of Theodosia.
