Sultan Mosques of Wonder Istanbul and a view of exterior of Little Hagia Sophia Mosque and courtyard (Turkish: Muhteşem İstanbul'un Sultan Camileri ve Küçük Ayasofya Camii ve avlusunun dışsal 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 historic building that is converted into a mosque has undergone many changes. All the inner ornamentations of the building had been changed and many windows in various dimensions were opened and some were closed in line with the Ottoman architectural style. Small dervish lodges and the tomb of Hüseyin Ağa were built arount the threshold of the mosque after its conversion. Those lodges were later on converted to a madrasah. They are today utilized as as handicraft's centre by Ahmet Yesevi Foundation. The mosque had become a shelter to those of the fugitives during the Balkan Wars. Earthquakes gave a great deal of damage. Yet the biggest damage was given by the railways passing very close to the mosque which is built in the years 1870-1871. For this reason, an Ottoman fashion retaining wall was bonded in 1877.
