Istanbul - Hagia Sophia...beautiful name n beautiful place!

On our way to Hagia Sophia...ada nice garden kat depan
Tempat duduk...unique sungguh this place
The Gate & it's near to the Sultan's tomb
Hagia Sophia Loren..hehe
I think this is the dome for the tomb
Ada kereta kuda lagi! Jums kita naik nak?
Gambar dari jauh..nampak with the fountain sekali
Ada security...security kat sini really tight!
The ruins, I guess must be they robohkan bila nak convert church
Other ruins

It was actually a church and was constructed between 532 to 537 AD during the Byzantine empire and was the largest Cathedral in the world for nearly a thousand years. It was then converted into a mosque by the Ottoman empire at 1453. It was the 1st church that has been converted into a mosque and later in year 1935 it was converted into a museum.

I had this eerie feeling when I entered Hagia Sophia because the bulding is very ancient! It has nice architecture too. I was in awe seeing the architectures, relics n imagine how was it like living in a few decades ago. I also wonder how they do the carving without the modern equipments. WOW! But I realize most of the paintings are almost the same with what I saw in Milan and Venice....I think maybe because it was made in the same era.
