Hagia Sophia Mosque, Istanbul

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

One of the most well known tourist destinations in Istanbul is the Hagia Sophia Mosque.  Built in the 6th century, for nearly a millenium it was the center of the Eastern Orthodox Church.  In the 15th century, after the Fall of Constantinople, it was converted to a mosque.  Contributor Omer Gocken used a drone to create this impressive aerial view of this religious landmark, which appeared in the opening scenes of two James Bond movies: the second, From Russia with Love (1963), and 25th, Skyfall (2012).
