Hagia Sofia in Trabzon started functioning as a mosque after 52 years of being a museum


As if there were not enough mosques in Turkey, Haghia Sophia in Trabzon started functioning as a mosque after 52 years of being a museum.

One of the most important historical edifices, Haghia Sophia was built in the 13th century. It was converted into a mosque after Mehmed II captured Constantinople. In 1960 it became a museum.

The decision of Erdogan’s government to convert famous Christian churches into mosques belongs to his efforts to increase Turkey’s influence in the Islamic world.
