The Church Hagia Sophia
Hagia Sophia has been standing for more than 1400 years. It's dimensions of 82 meters long and 73 meters wide, sporting a dome 33 meters in diameter with a crown that rises 55 meters from the ground level is formidable at its time of construction. Hagia Sophia was constructed in 537 BC as a Greek Orthodox Church by Emperor Justinian I to replace the original church by the same name that was torched. The massive dome is held up by spherical triangles that arise from four huge piers that carry the weight of the cupola. To create an air of sanctity, 40 windows beneath allow sunlight to suffuse the interior and irradiate the gold mosaics. While it took nearly a century for medieval builders to construct the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, the church was completed in less than 6 years. A variety of ornate mosaics were added over the centuries by each emperor after Justinian I. They included imperial portraits, images of the imperial family, different emperors, images of Christ and Virgin Mary with Jesus as a child. Hagia Sophia served as an Eastern Orthodox Cathedral until 1453 AD when Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II who conquered Istanbul converted it into a mosque. It served as inspiration for many other Ottoman mosques including the Blue Mosque, Suleymaniye Mosque, Rustem Pasha Mosque, Sehzade Mosque and Kılıç Ali Pasa Mosque.
