Ayasofia minaret45 viewsThough the Ayasofia no longer functions as either a church or a mosque, the exquisite art of both Byzantine Christianity and Ottoman Islam still awes visitors to the museum. The Byzantine mosaics were plastered and painted over when it served as a mosque, but in some places the plaster has been removed so you can see the stunning Christian images behind the beautiful Muslim designs.mudmine
