"Inside Aya Sofya" Hagia Sophia - Ayia Sofia - Ayasofya Tip by MalenaN


The interior is impressive with a dome 56 metres high. It is a heavy building and it has been reinforced several times. In Aya Sofya there are many golden Byzantine mosaics.

In the picture is the mimber (pulpit in a mosque). On top of the columns are huge discs, with Arabic scripts, hanging.
