about hagia sophia

Hagia Sophia, located in Istanbul,Turkey, was chosen a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1985. It is in the European part of the city in Sultanahmet area (old town), nearby Topkapi palace in Istanbul. Over 500 years following the conquest of Muslims, it became a jewel for the Muslim world and as the grand mosque of the Sultans. In 1935, Hagia Sophia was converted into a museum of Turkish Republic by the orders of Ataturk and became one of the most significant monuments not only in Turkey but on earth with its architecture and its historical richness.

Hagia Sophia today defines the intricacy of Turkish design and architecture, with its tombs, exclusive artwork on its doors, ceilings, and walls and a library full of valuable information and insights on the local culture.
