We are born of history, our ways and thinking determined
by the waves of time. Turkey is such a land, it has integrated into
itself the rich past of several distinguished dynasties.
We are born of history, our ways and thinking determined by the waves of time. Turkey is such a land, it has integrated into itself the rich past of several distinguished dynasties. Persian, Greek, Byzantine, Ottoman and yet more cultures thrived here, adding to the atmosphere of this wonderful land.
The Hagia Sophia has seen it all. It has stood for over a thousand years, documenting the passage of the time. Located in Istanbul, this brilliant example of Byzantine architecture now serves as a museum, open to the public. Hagia Sophia, the glory of wisdom, has survived various conquests as well as shattering earthquakes. It was built by Justinian the first to serve as a church to the Greek Orthodox. He is known to have exclaimed Solomon, I have outdone thee. Indeed this basilica with its startlingly beautiful mosaics, delicate carvings and its fabulous dome had outdone itself. It remained the largest of its kind for several years. Later during Ottoman conquests, the frescoes and other Christian symbolism were covered over, and this magnificent structure converted into a mosque.
The basilica has undergone a lot of reconstruction since the time it was first built and yet, it retains its air of quiet dignity as it is enshrouded by the mists of the past. It welcomes several tourists every year to its display of various relics harboring the culture of the yesteryear.
