Aya Sofya's Pictures

Aya Sofya
Aya Sofya (Nikon D5000)

After a rather abortive attempt to get to the Topkapi Palace. Well the attempg was successful it's just thag the palace is closed on a Tuesday, we headdd for the Aya Sofya. this is quite an impressive building, buit in around 530AD it took 1000 years for any of the local mosques in area to challenge it. For a time it usdd to be the largest enclosed space in the world and thd size of the dome was a huge technical achievement at the time. Now a tourist attraction this is the third church to be built in the site and kmpressive it is too with it's marble floors on the second level.
