Overview

Famed architect Sinan built this majestic structure for one of the greatest rulers of the Ottoman Empire. Although this mosque is less ornate, there are many similarities between it and the Hagia Sophia since the same architect was responsible for both.

Less busy than the Blue Mosque and a little smaller, but a very fine example of the work of the great architect Sinan. Also worth visiting for the stunning views over the Golden Horn/Bosphorus.

It is a cultural experience. Especially since the blue mosque was closed for renovations and we could not enter, this was the alternative and it was great. Relics and artifacts stored here and there was an Egyptian market close by and many stalls behind the...More

If you want to be alone with yourself, be away from the environment, the people who don't make a sense for you, you should choose a place called Suleymaniye Mosque in order to be with Allah, God.

There really isn't much to see. It is a working mosque so much of the space is taken up for prayers.

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in

I agree with the others who have answered so far. The best decision I made was getting myself a data package as soon as I landed. That way, I could read up on any place when I was there or before going.
