Cloak of a Cosmos

When I visited Hagia Sophia in the winter of 2016, there was an amazing structure present inside, a launchpad to the universe above.

Architecture had in this instance created a world greater than the one encompassing it. The great dome of Hagia Sophia, built in the year 537, had become a universe, blinding the viewer from the actual one, in a way so spectacular, it matters no more.
