Istanbul's Hagia Sophia dates from the sixth century and the golden age of the Byzantine Empire, and is thought of as the height of the era’s architectural techniques. The Hagia Sophia — Greek for "Holy Wisdom" — was constructed as part of the church and was the world’s largest cathedral for almost 1,000 years, as well as the center of the Eastern Orthodox Church. After the city was conquered by the Ottoman Turks in 1453, it served as a mosque until 1935, when it became a state museum.
