  Hagia Sophia?s Miracle Pillar
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

To the left from the Urns you?ll see the "weeping" or "miracle" column. Legend has it that if you have an ailment and stick your finger into the hole in the column and the finger's wet when it comes out, you'll be healed.
Another legend has it that if you successfully complete a 360-degree circle with your thumb in the hole, you will be granted a wish. It is also said to "weep" water that has healing properties.
