Travel photo of the day
Hagia Sophia in all its glory
- ssesha, CNN iReport producer
This picture was taken during our trip to Istanbul. This was taken at Hagia Sophia. Hagia Sophia used to be an Orthodox church, later a mosque and now a museum. When we saw the serpentine queue for the tickets, we hoped it wasn’t just an overpriced tourist trap. It was anything but that. The ambience in there was beautiful in spite of the hordes of tourists.
