Hagia Sophia Mosque, which is visited by millions of Muslims every year after it was converted back into a mosque, was cleaned before Ramadan. While the interior of the mosque was washed with rose water, its courtyard and surroundings were cleaned with hot water.

The sultan of 11 months is almost here.

On March 11, preparations began in mosques before the start of Ramadan.

On July 24, 2020, the Hagia Sophia Mosque, which was converted back to a mosque from museum status, will experience another Ramadan month excitement.

After more than 60 years, the Hagia Sophia Mosque, where a dream came true, was cleaned.

Ramadan is busier than other months

On the other hand, the month of Ramadan is busier than other months in Hagia Sophia, where the number of visitors has not decreased since the day it was converted into a mosque.

Especially in this holy place, people compete with each other to pray terawih with thousands of Muslims.

The teams continue to work to ensure that visits take place peacefully within the framework of hygiene rules.
