Hagia Sophia of Bangalore?


This building on Bannerghatta road looks like Hagia Sophia museum of Istanbul, Turkey. Hagia Sophia means "Holy Wisdom"; is a former Christian church, later an imperial mosque, and now a museum; it was built in 537 CE. From the time it was built to 1453, it served as a church. The building was a mosque between 1453 and 1931. On February 1, 1935 it was secularized and opened up as a museum.
