The Hagia Sophia, (Greek Ἁγία Σοφία / Hagia Sophia, which means "Holy Wisdom", "Divine Wisdom," a name taken in Turkey as Ayasofya) is a former Christian church in Constantinople the 6 th century, now a mosque the 15 th century under the leadership of Sultan Mehmed 2. It is built on the historical peninsula of Istanbul. Since 1934, it is no longer a place of worship but a museum. Its esplanade is a measure of the glory of Byzantium. Often called the Great Church, the Basilica is dedicated to Christ, "Wisdom of God", according to the Christian theological tradition. Roger.

Hello. 銭形警部. Thank you for your visit and to estimate my photos the Hagia Sophia. 大丈夫、12月にトルコに向かっているが、ここでは、冬になるとそれもイスタンブールの雪で寒いですので、それはトルコを訪問する最高の月ではありません。ベストヶ月春または秋にあります。私は、フランス語の翻訳があなたのために理解できる日本人であることを願っています。For your visit to Turkey.

Greetings of France, Roger. Good day to you.
