Bizans İmparatoru I. Jüstinyen tarafından, 537 yılında İstanbul'un tarihi yarımadasında inşa ettirilmiş bazilika planlı bir patrik katedrali olup, 1453 yılında İstanbul'un Osmanlılar tarafından alınmasından sonra, Fatih Sultan Mehmet tarafından camiye dönüştürülmüştür. 1935 yılından beri ise müze olarak kullanılmaktadır.

Hagia Sophia was built by the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I in 537 as a church on the historical peninsula of Istanbul. After Istanbul was conquered by the Ottomans in 1453, it was converted into a mosque by Fatih Sultan Mehmet. It was used as a museum between 1935-2020, and it has been used as a mosque again since 2020.
