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.

I got lost (multiple times) trying to find this mosque, but was so happy I stuck with my plan to go there. It's so beautiful and much-less trafficked than Blue Mosque (although you should go there too).

You can easily get there. Just get the metro to the Vezneciler station and then it is 10 min walk. The architecture is amazing. Make sure you visit the inside of the mosque from courtyard door. The courtyard is beautiful and has a magnificent view to the bosphorus. There are many coffee shop around that you can rest and have... More

It is one of the most beautiful mosques in Istanbul, I don’t know how could they build it in 1950, it is great and beautiful building from out and in, when you visit it you feel the history.

This was my third Istanbul visit and I'm glad I went to the Süleymaniye-Mosque. The architecture is breathtakingly amazing and the inside of the Mosque is also very beautiful. There is a little park outside the Mosque where you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Bosphorus and the Galata Tower. I was there when it was already dark out... More

Very close from the metro. Cool and refreshing trip to this mosque. But the guard was extreme unfriendly and yelled at people.

As beautiful as the Blue Mosque and emptier. Because of that the energy flows in a better way. The illumination is beautiful as well and the external area is very pleasant.

Probably the best of all. It is so far the best preserved kulliye (comlex) I would claim. Despite its extensive scale, it is such a peaceful atmosphere here. Much better maintained. Not only you can spend time visiting the complex, but also have the chance to try the best kuru - pilav in the city (white beans and rice). The... More

you won't need more than an hour to visit this place, but it's worth the time, it is a beautiful mosque and is one of the distinct mosques in Istanbul you should see.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighborhood 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 neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
