Istanbul Aya Sofya view to entrance

view map

They moved the tourists entrance slightly to the side, but we'll pretend this is where we entered. Straight ahead is the entrance many people will take, the one with the mosaic with Constantine the Great and Justinian.

You can here get some indication of the size of the central building.
