Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

 

This weeks photo challenge is geometry this is my entry – part of the ceiling in the Hagia Sophia, Istanbul.

Hagia Sophia was choosen as a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1985.
Rebuilt by the orders of Emperor Justinian in 537, for 900 years Hagia Sophia was the center of Orthodox Christianity until 1453 when the city was taken over by Ottomans. 500 years following the conquest of Muslims, it became a jewel for the Muslim world as the grand mosque of the sultans.
In 1935, Hagia Sophia was converted into a museum of Turkish Republic by the orders of Ataturk, and became one of the most significant monuments in Turkey.
