Wonders of Istanbul: Hagia Sophia, Aya Sofya

Hagia Sophia was built by Byzantine Emperor Constantine in the fourth century and reconstructed by Justinian in 537 A.D.

Hagia Sophia was the greatest church in Christendom for a thousand years, and remains an architectural masterpiece to this day. Its immense dome rises nearly 200 feet above the ground and is more than 100 feet in diameter.

The Ottomans converted the basilica to a mosque in the 15th century, but today the Hagia Sophia serves as a public museum, known for its majestic serenity and fine Byzantine mosaics.
