  1. I am surprised at the decision to turn this back into a place of worship as others may not be able to view this magnificent piece of architecture. I am glad I visit Hagia Sophia and saw it.

  2. I am sure you watch/hear the news from here, dear Michael, they turned this historical and meaningful place to a symbol of our religion… It means, we are going far away from secular system… I read like that… How sad… how sad… Thank you, Love, nia

    • I am so sad for this… They want us to take in old days… Before Mustafa Kemal Atatรผrk… We all worry about this…

    • yes dear Michael, you are right, makes me so sad… our generation will carry all these memories… and what will be then, after us… Thank you, Love, nia

    • I take it you are Turkish? (Salaam aleikum) ๐Ÿ˜‰That man is very bad news. For Turkey and the rest of the mediterranean… Sad. All my best wishes.

    • Yes, I am Turkish, but speaking Turkish too ๐Ÿ™‚ not Arabic. Thank you, Best Wishes to you too, nia

    • Merhaba Nia.
      My bad, I was born in Pakistan and though they speak Urdu, they say ‘Salaam aleikum’. I assumed wrong then…
      Stay safe. (From all the dangers of this world…)
