This is the exterior of the Hagia Sophia, as seen from across the park outside. The building has a fascinating history, having started out as a Greek Orthodox basilica before the Ottomans revamped it as a mosque (hence the addition of minarets). It is not in the best of shape, but it is still an excellent place to visit.
