Travel Photo of the Day | 3.9.11 | Sun on Hagia Sophia

Istanbul, Turkey

Originally built as a Church, later used as a Mosque, and today a museum.  The Hagia Sophia stood as an important site through both Byzantine and Ottoman rule, and the monumental architecture shows signs of each of it’s phases.  Here the suns rays shine beautifully through the structural buttresses of the historic building.

      Istanbul is one of the gems of the world in my head…there is so much beauty in the architectural elements and traditional handicrafts (both old and new) of the place…and so many wonderful people. If not my absolute favorite city in the world, it’s in the top 5…I highly recommend it to anyone.
