Well since this is the MiddleEast forum and this is about Turkey
Turkish Community says Jabba the Hut's Palace resemblesa Mosque, specifically the Hagia Sophia Mosque.


After investigating, Dr Melissa Günes, General Secretary of the Turkish Cultural Community, said that Lego had been contacted with an official complaint
Lego should release another set , but this time with the Hagia Sophia as a Church.
