The Hagia Sophia was built during the reign of Justinian the Great as the largest of 25 new cathedrals built during his rule. It was built in just five years, between 532 and 537, and for centuries it was the largest building in the Western world. It shows both Roman and Eastern influences, and while the outside is plain to symbolize earthly life, the interior is ornate to symbolize the spiritual universe. During the Nika Riots, it was burned down, but rebuilt.
