Ayia Sophia is a monument for the Greeks with great historical value. Of course, perhaps, it is also exceptionally beautyfult as althought it is big it remains elegant.

Very good example of a Greek Orthodox Church. The old baths in the basement are a martyrion - very very cool!!

This is certainly not the Istanbul mecca, but Thessa's little Hagia Sofia is a great example of Byzantine architecture.
