As a melting pot of world religion, Istanbul is infiltrated with mosques, churches and synagogues. In fact, it's likely that you'll visit a religious building that contains artifacts, mosaics and portraits that feature items from a variety of religions.
Aya Sofya: The Eighth Wonder of the World
One of the most famous structures in Istanbul perfectly fits this description: Aya Sofya. Since Istanbul is a city where the east and west collide, the Aya Sofya, commonly known as "the eighth wonder of the world," is adorned with influences of Eastern and Western civilizations. Aside from celebrating the prowess of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, Aya Sofya contains breathtaking architecture that depicts its use as a church and a mosque in earlier times. That said, a trip to Istanbul is not complete without a visit to the Aya Sofya!
