Today’s first destination is the Hagia Sophia Mosque.
Hagia Sophia, which was originally a Greek Orthodox church, is also an important historical and cultural site in Istanbul.
Hagia Sophia is an important Byzantine structure in Istanbul and also one of the great monuments of the world.
The Hagia Sophia was built in the 6th century (532-537) under the direct supervision of the Byzantine emperor Justinian I.
Along the way, Hagia Sophia went through several changes in function.
At first, Hagia Sophia was a Christian church. Then after Constantinople was conquered by Sultan Mehmet II of the Ottoman Empire, Hagia Sophia then turned into a mosque.
In 1931, the Hagia Sophia was closed to the public for 4 years.
And the Hagia Sophia was reopened by the government of the secular Turkish Republic in 1935 as a museum.
Until finally in July 2020, the Turkish government changed the function of the Hagia Sophia back into a mosque.
Visiting Hagia Sophia while you are traveling in Istanbul is a must. This monument was once the most visited tourist spot in 2015 and 2019.
The next destination after Hagia Sophia is the Blue Mosque.
Sultan Mehmet I’s initial goal to build the Blue Mosque in 1690-1616 was to emulate the splendor of the Hagia Sophia.
The real name of the Blue Mosque is actually the Sultan Ahmed Mosque. The name of the mosque is taken from the founder of this mosque.
Later this mosque was dubbed the Blue Mosque because the majority of the interior walls of this mosque were lined with blue ornate ceramics from Iznik.
The sunlight that enters the mosque reflects a very beautiful blue color throughout the mosque. This beauty is the background of the Sultan Ahmed Mosque known as the Blue Mosque.
The architect who designed the Blue Mosque, Sedefkar Mehmed Agha, was then buried in one of the areas inside the mosque next to Sultan Mehmet I.
From the Blue Mosque then you will visit Topkapi Palace.
Also known as Cannon Gate Palace, Topkapi Palace was the administrative center of the Ottoman Empire from 1460.
Topkapi Palace was also the main residence of the Ottoman sultans until the 17th century. Until finally in 1856, the administrative center of the Ottoman empire was moved to the Dolmabahce Palace.

The Virgin Mary’s House is located not far from Ephesus, precisely on Mount Koressos, 7 km from Selcuk.
The Virgin Mary’s House is a catholic shrine.
