Hagia Sophia…1,479 Years of Resilience 

In response to The Daily Post’s Photo Challenge, “Resilient“.

Hagia Sophia: 1,479 years and counting…


Completed in 537, the Hagia Sophia has withstood the test of time for 1,479 years. First, it was a Greek Orthodox Church, then an imperial mosque, and now, a museum at the Old City (Sultanahmet) in Istanbul, Turkey.
