The Suleymaniye Mosque is an awesome historical site of one of the largest Mosques in Turkey.
You can feel the power of Allah whenever you see this huge and beautiful architecture. It' s a kind picture of empire Ottomans
The place to come to for perfect quiet, surreal views of the Golden Horn and cityscape, and the most exquisite example of mosque architecture in the city. The sounds of the metropolis melt when you come within the beautiful grounds, leaving you with the sound of the birds and the wind. The courtyard just before the mosque gives picture-perfect perspective views, and inside it is quiet and meditative. Built by the famed architect, Mimar Sinan, this is a must-see.
Due to the limited amount of time that we had in Istanbul, we opted to see the Sulemaniye Mosque instead of the Blue Mosque during our tour of the city. It's away from a lot of the other major sites in Istanbul, but I would highly recommend it. It's very much worth the visit. The mosque is an architectural marvel. There were so many amazing details used in the design of the mosque, down to the use of ostrich eggs to ward away spiders. It's also absolutely beautiful.
This mosque is really beautiful and not as crowded as Hagia Sophia or the Blue Mosque. Great atmosphere.
The mosque of Sulyman the Magnificent is the finest work of the famous architect Mimar Sinan in the city of Istanbul. The Sulymaniye sits on top of a hill overlooking the Golden Horn. The grounds are isolated from the throngs of shoppers and tourists you'll find around New Mosque or Sultanahmet. Be sure to check out the Ottoman cemetery inside the grounds and note how the headpieces of the grave stones denote the ranks of the people buried there. The tombs of the Sultan and his wife are usually open. The interior of the mosque is painted in darker tones than many of the other mosques. However the Sulymaniye boasts some of the finest Iznik tiles in the city.
