It's so wonderful to appreciate the golden legacy of Greek culture in such beautiful buildings as Hagia Sophia. Also, Byzantine art is incredibly beautiful.

I read that there is a phropercy when Otomans enter the Ortodox church Aghia Sophia liturgy was going on.And in one moment the wall cracked inside church and when they take out priests.The liturgy still goes on and Otomans were scared so they keept church closed for couple of days.Since liturgy wasnt means it would be ortodox again.

Too bad we Christians were dumb enough to loose such a magnificent church; who knows-GOD willing-we'll get it back someday.

I’m Turkish, I’ve visited Hagia Sophia for many times. This church has something else.. its aura and energy are so great that I get goosebumps in my every visit. Kinda wishing it remained as a cathedral though. But those things are in the past, there’s no need for hate anymore

It is an Orthodox Cathedral, it is Greek, its name is Hagia Sophia and the city's name is Constantinople (aka 'Istanbul' from the words 'Is Tin Poli' which means 'At The City') and remember that the Greeks shall return to unveil the figures that were scrapped off or covered and offer it to the whole humanity as its presence is of universal value and its meaning wraps up a constellation of peaceful and sacred values that barbarians who conquer for the sake of authority and expansion are sublimely unaware of. PS: the name Turks use to refer to the cathedral is Ayasofya and that name is ...Greek.

One small detail: you sais that Constantinople was renamed Istanbul as soon as 1453; I think it's much more later than that, during the XIX th century in fact....

Anthemius of Tralles (Greek: Ἀνθέμιος ὁ Τραλλιανός, Anthémios o Trallianós; c. 474 – 533 x 558) was a Greek from Tralles who worked as a geometer and architect in Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire. With Isidore of Miletus, he designed the Hagia Sophia for Justinian I.

As a non-ıslamıc Turk, I see in the comments that; every religion and every race have its own idiots 😂
Guys we are in 2020. We need to talk about innovation, technology. Just watch the video and learn some history. You cant change history with your words.

I pray for the day when the Ottomans are driven from the Holy City and Constantinople rises again and Holy Mass is said again at the (Sancta Sophia) Hagia Sophie!Deus Vult!!Et orate pro more Ottomanorum convallibus ista rapientes, cum die resurget et Constantinopolitani Sancti urbe iterum atque iterum dicitur sanctus missa in (Sanctam Sophiam) Hagia Sophia!! Vult Deus !!God wills it!Constantinople & Hagia Sophia groan in agony under the heel of the Infidel!She will only find peace when once again the Holy Cross sits atop her Dome, Parapets and Holy Gates!Deus vult illud! Constantinopoli Sancta Sophia & gemitumque dedere apud Infideles habitant sub calcaneo dolor! Et non invenietis: et ubi est pax Cross sits Dome vertice eius, et pinnae aliquot Sanctus porta!
