Description

 

This amazing building was initially a church built in 537. When the Ottoman Turks conquered Constantinople in 1453,

Sultan Mehmet II ordered it to be converted into a mosque by removing any Christian symbols, images etc.

and by adding Mihrab, Minbar, and four Minarets. It stayed a mosque from 1453 until 1931. It was then secularised 

and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935. The larger and widely known 'Blue Mosque' is also near by.
