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.

Visited the suleymaniye musjid on a fday for the Jummah prayer. The mosque's architecture is beautiful. After the prayer the locals gather at the restaurants to have lunch. This is where I had the best sugarbeans served with rice, steak cubes , grilled aubergine and chilli flakes . A meal that I will truly never forget.

It was a beautiful mosque as are all the mosques in Turkey. I was very impressed either their cleanliness and the accessibility foe females. Large areas for the ladies unlike some Indian sub content where they do not cater for the ladies. So easy able to offer my prayers wherever I went in Turkey. Lovely

An absolute must when visiting Istanbul. Make sure to cover up accordingly as it's a holy place . Head scarfs and / or full length skirts etc is available by the entrance for tourists for free . I think they do ask for a small voluntary donation. Every time I visit this beauty it takes my breath away. It's so... More

If you are walking here, be prepared to walk up the hill through crowded streets to get here. Inside, it is very similar to Blue Mosque, so it may be disappointing. Views around are definitely worth it, though.

Suleymaniye Mosque / Masjid Sulaiman Al Qonuni. A mosque is named after a great king Sulayman Al Qanuni, who brought to the golden era of Ottoman Turks Empire. The mosque has a very spectacular with beautiful views, facing toward Galata, Golden Horn and the Bosphorus.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
