The Hagia Sophia is unfortunately not in the best of condition, and when we were there, fully a quarter of the interior was filled with scaffolding as they worked to conserve and restore the site. Still, I was able to get this shot of the medallions that ringed the chamber, each bearing an Arabic inscription; you can also make out some of the other decorative elements.
