Disappointing views from the Hagia Sophia a few days after its desecration (vid)

Featured Disappointing views from the Hagia Sophia a few days after its desecration (vid)

The images from the Hagia Sophia cause sadness, after its transformation into a mosque. Images that testify to the sloppiness and radical transformation of the image of this world monument.

The camera of "ΕΡΤ" channel was in Hagia Sophia, a few days after its conversion into a mosque and captured the desecration of the historic church, recording how the hagiographies and the invaluable mosaics have been covered and how its image has been radically transformed.

In the exonarthex of the temple, roughly placed cloths cover the murals, while just below, there are shelves where Muslims leave their shoes before prayer.

In one of the niches of the temple the seraphs have not been covered, while from below, Muslims come and go without much respect to the monument.

A huge scaffolding hides the work being done. In many parts of the temple one finds the Koran left by Muslims.

Erdogan's haste to turn the Hagia Sophia into a mosque did not result in the completion of the planned works. The women's section is closed and access to the most important mosaics, such as that of the Deisis, is forbidden.
