Hagia Sofia

Originally built as a Christian patriarchal basilica, then converted to an imperial mosque, and now a museum. Original construction started in 537 AD, it had the largest dome in the world for nearly one thousand years. Breathtaking. Under restoration while we were there, but still an awesome experience.
