General

Hagia Sophia was the world largest religious temple and still needs to be considered as only one at its own category due to no any other building to be compared with it.
This masterpiece is the most important and grandest of Christian church architecture. It is a challenge to nature and a separation from traditional architecture style. It is Hagia Sophia that a building first time covered by massive dome and first time to support central dome by two semi domes to provide more space. It has served two religious and  two great empire, over 900 years as church and around 500 years as mosque. Once you go into building that historic,mystical, vibrant harmony vigorously embrace you and take you a journey for 1400 years.
