Hagia Sophia interior
Hagia Sophia is a former Greek Orthodox patriarchal basilica, later an imperial mosque, and now a museum in Istanbul, Turkey.

Fun fact: some 300,000 eggs (if I recall correctly) were used in the construction of the Hagia Sophia, as to make it shock absorbent.
Truly a marvellous wonder, especially for its time.

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
