Ratings
9.0/10

Hagija Sofija [aja sofija] (turško Ayasofya, grško Αγία Σοφία, latinsko Sancta Sophia ali Sancta Sapientia), v pomenu Sveta modrost, je nekdanja patriarhalna bazilika, kasnejšnja mošeja ter današnji muzej v turškem mestu Istanbul.

Cerkev so začeli graditi za časa vladavine cesarja Justinijana I., leta 532, dokončana je bila leta 537. V njej se je odvijalo kronanje bizantinskih cesarjev. Po padcu Carigrada je leta 1453 sultan Mehmed II. cerkev preuredil v mošejo. Po osmanski osvojitvi Bizantinskega cesarstva je Hagija Sofija postala najpomembnejša mošeja Osmanskega cesarstva. Po prihodu Kemala Ataturka na oblast so jo leta 1935 preuredili v muzej. Velja za eno najlepših zgradb na svetu, zato je tudi na seznamu Unesca. Včasih jo celo imenujejo osmo čudo sveta. V zadnjem času obstaja pobuda, da se spet preuredi v cerkev.

Right across from the cistern is the greatest single building in a city full of wonders, the Hagia Sophia or Aya Sofya (£8.70, closed Mondays). It was a church, then a mosque and is now a museum.

Haghia Sophia is considered one of the finest architectural works in the world. Although it was occasionally damaged and repaired, its essence remains untouched especially since 1453.

We could say a lot about Ayasofya... But, for me, two words: home and hope...

The inside is even more intresting that the outside. Especially the mirrored marble on the walls.

No visit to Istanbul is ever complete without visiting the Hagia Sofia, former basilica, mosque, and now a museum. Pay attention to all the mosaics and the dome, some of the museum's best features.

916 yıl kilise, 481 yıl da cami olarak hem Hıristiyanlığa, hem de Müslümanlığa hizmet etmiştir.İlk yapıldığında Büyük Kilise (Megale Ekklesia) denilen yer Fetih’ten sonra ise Ayasofya ismini almıştır!

İstanbul'a gelen turistlerin ilk rotası... Alt galerideki minberle üst galerideki freskler başka yerde bulamayacağınız mükemmel bir sentez. Dev kubbesi ve kubbeye çıkan yol baş döndürüyor

Üst kata çıkıp sağ kanatta (minberin sağı) bulunan camlardan bakabilirseniz daha önce görmediğiniz bir Sultanahmet Camii ve Sultan türbeleri manzarası görebilirsiniz.
