Hagia Sophia

Hagia Sophia in Istanbul is a wonderful building.

Built as a Greek Orthodox Church, later became a Mosque, and is now a museum.

Fountain - used for ritual ablutions

Some interior pictures:






Paintings & mosaics on the wall depicting various Biblical figures - these were uncovered in the 1930s.





Looking up...



Yet another wonderful memory of our holiday in Turkey.
