Are there holy figures buried here from the Christian religion? If not I don't see it as a good comparison. 

I have visited Hagia Sophia. Yes there are Christian holy figures burried there.

Like who? 

In 1204, it was converted by the Fourth Crusaders to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire, before being restored to the Eastern Orthodox Church upon the return of the Byzantine Empire in 1261. The doge of Venice who led the Fourth Crusade and the 1204 Sack of Constantinople, Enrico Dandolo, was buried in the church.

The graves are still there, as far as I know. If you walk up the ramp which leads to the first floor, on the way up, there is an opening in the wall where I think it was marked that the graves were there. 

Enrico Dandolo (anglicised as Henry Dandolo and Latinized as Henricus Dandulus; c. 1107 – May 1205) was the 41st Doge of Venice from 1192 until his death. He is remembered for his avowed piety, longevity, and shrewdness, and is known for his role in the Fourth Crusade and the Sack of Constantinople.

There are bodies buried inside the Hagia Sophia?

Then either the bodies are removed or the mosque closed.

Why?

Note to Ayat 18:21, Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol 1 No. 426, in part quoting Muhammad -(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).s. :

". . . they who would build a place of worship at his (a righteous, pious man) grave and make these pictures in it; they are the worst creatures in the sight of Allah -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)."

So how much worse than when the person was a crusader?
