Turkey turns iconic Hagia Sophia museum into mosque July 11, 2020

ISLAMABAD-In Turkey, the world-famous Hagia Sophia museum in Istanbul has been turned back into a mosque.

The 1,500 years old building was converted into a mosque in 1453 and became a museum in 1934.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the decision after a court annulled the site's museum status.
