Description

Little Hagia Sophia Mosque is a former Greek Eastern Orthodox church dedicated to Saints Sergius and Bacchus in Constantinople, converted into a mosque during the Ottoman Empire.nThis Byzantine building with a central dome plan was erected in the sixth century by Justinian, likely was a model for Hagia Sophia (“Holy Wisdom”), and is one of the most important early Byzantine buildings in Istanbul. It was recognized at the time as an adornment to the entire city, and a modern historian of the East Roman Empire has written that the church, “by the originality of its architecture and the sumptuousness of its carved decoration, ranks in Constantinople second only to St. Sophia itself”.
