Sultan Ahmet Park, view in northeastern direction to the Hagia Sophia. This ancient building reflects the diverse history of Istanbul: since its completion in 537 it has served as a Christian, Greek Orthodox, and Roman Catholic church until 1453, then as imperial mosque until 1931 and, since 1935, as a museum.
