Hagia Sophia, built between 532 and 537 in Justinian period is one of the leading works in terms of architecture and art history. Its architects were Anthemius of Tralles (Aydın) and Isidore of Miletus.

It served as a church in the Byzantine era, as a mosque in Ottoman era, and today it’s a museum since 1935. Today’s Hagia Sophia is the third Hagia Sophia built in the same location. Remnants of the first building did not reach today; some of the remnants of the second building excavated in 1935 can be seen near the entrance of the third one.
