This building is in Istanbul and has been a Jewish Temple, a Catherdral, a mosque and is now a Catherdral. From what I have studied it is most breath taking. I thought everyone should have this glimpse!

Places Unknown and Everything Else

Hagia Sophia is beautiful place to visit, and by the way you don’t have to wear pants or cover your shoulders to visit it. We thought that we had to and went back to hotel to get the right attire before going to see it. Wearing pants in the middle of July in Istanbul is not the most pleasant experience. Imagine my surprise when I learned that Hagia Sophia is not active mosque anymore and it is tourist attraction, you have to buy a ticket to get in (not cheap one either), so you can pretty much wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

    The architecture like this is beautiful which sadly is rarely replicated in the West.
