Turkey has introduced a new dress code to visit Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia, which was converted into a mosque last month.

According to the code, visitors have to wear a headscarf to visit the sixth-century site.

Entering it with shorts or “revealing” clothes is banned.

Following the code’s introduction, authorities started to distribute overalls and headscarves in front of Hagia Sophia.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan declared the monument a mosque last month following a court ruling revoking its status as a museum.
