What an ignorant, dumb, stupid, silly post!

Ok the ones you mention as ''those things'' are called mosques! There are 11 of them at the pics actually and many domes too.

Which ones were built for christian worship Pricamazda?! Tell me!!! Which one except Hagia Sophia?!

Tell me! I'm waiting!

You'll rather kill yourself instead of making a positive comment about Turkey and related topics am i wrong?!

You troll...

Now now, how quickly you all bite. I was trying to point out that the Hagia Sophia along with Istanbul owes a lot of its heritage to Rome and Constantinople. Thats all. I wonder how many mosques in Istanbul were churches or synagogues or other places of worship first. Just like in jerusalem the site of the old Temple, now its meant to be the third most holy site in Islam and they built a whacking great big Dome of the rock there.

OMG!! I hates those europeans who just want to say something bad without having ANY idea about that they are talking about!We didn't demolish any chruch,they all still exist!Even in the regions(Balkans) where the ottomans ruled for 400 years the chruches weren't demolished!But the european people (greeks) demolished all mosques and nowadays Athnes has many moslems living in the city but they have not even ONE mosque in the city!!

None of them. I can count the names of the architects, but you don't know them...

I don't know! It's original name is Sultanahmed. My guess is that at most pics you see the blue sea at the background, maybe that's why they call it Blue Mosque in english...

Its original name is Sultanahmet mosque but its called "Blue Mosque" because of the blue Turkish ceramics interior of the Mosque.
