DESCRIPTION

The Hagia Sophia is known as the mother of churches.

WHEN WAS IT BUILT?

The church was built by a man named Constantius II in 360 BC.

WHEN WAS IT DESTROYED?

The church was destroyed during the riots in 404 BC by a huge fire that burnt it to ground.The church was rebuilt many times because it kept getting destroyed by earthquakes.

I think you should vote for the Hagia Sophia because....

It's been made two times so its likely to last. It `is also a beautiful church and is very well known. Its also a very nice place to visit and it's a memorial church to remember the people that died in the riot.
