Istanbul's Hagia Sophia might return to place of worship

The 6th century Byzantine marvel, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, may be returning to its orgins as a place of worship by once again becoming a mosque. The former church is now a museum.

Restoration is currently being done on the building, and the construction of a "mimbar - a platform for the imam -- is planned to be built in the museum." The Hagia Sophia became a mosque after the city was conquered by Mehmet II in 1453.
