Hagia Sophia

While I was in Istanbul it snowed which is a very rare event in such a low hemisphere. I took the opportunity to make a “Mr. Snowman” so that I could take an original “Christmas” picture of Hagia Sophia during the holidays. Some of the pictures below depicts Hagia Sophia covered in snow and Mr. Snowman present on site. Hagia Sophia, first a christian church during the Roman Empire (Constantinople) and later Easter Roman Empire (Byzantium), later it became a Mosque during the Ottoman empire until actuality (Istanbul). Few christian pieces of art are still present (pictures bellow), but the architectural structure is that of a mosque.
