Sultan Mosques of Wonder Istanbul and a view of interior dome of Little Hagia Sophia Mosque (Turkish: Muhteşem İstanbul'un Sultan Camileri ve Küçük Ayasofya Camii'nin iç kubbesinin bir görüntüsü). Little Hagia Sophia (Turkish: Küçuk Ayasofya Camii), formerly the Church of the Saints Sergius and Bacchus (Greek: Eκκλησία τῶν Άγίων Σεργίου καί Βάκχου ὲν τοῖς Ὸρμίσδου), is a former Eastern Orthodox church dedicated to Saints Sergius and Bacchus in Constantinople, later converted into a mosque during the Ottoman Empire.

The mosque is situated between the Port of Kadırga and the Vicinity of Cankurtaran, Küçük Ayasofya Mosque, English literally Little Hagia Sophia Mosqe, was actually built for the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I in 527 in the honour and name of Saints Sergius and Bacchus. According to the legend, he is saved when St. Sergius and St. Bacchus testified on behalf of him in his Uncle Justin I's dream just before the night he was about to get punished for taking part in the upheaval against his uncle. And he had this church built in the name of these saints when he became the Emperor in 527. During the sultanate of Sultan Bayezid II, Agha of Babussaade (House of Feicity) Hüseyin Ağa had it converted into a mosque in the year 1505. While its name was the Church of Sergius and Bacchus, then it was named as Küçük Ayasofya Mosque (Little Hagia Sophia Mosque) since the structure of the building is similar to Hagia Sophia.
