Owner description: 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.

“Incredible”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

On my recent trip over seas I fell deep deep deep in love with mosques. My family and I saw the Blue Mosque the day before and it was absolutely stunning but it was so hard to enjoy because of the amount of tourists. If you are looking for a breath-taking mosque off the beaten path than look no further!

There's so shopping to the side and I had one the best meals in Istanbul there too. It's a place that serves beans. Go there. It's delicious!

“Huge!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This one is definitely in competiton with the blue Mosque for the title of the biggest. You can see it from everywhere from the Bosphorus or from the Golden horn. A great Hammam is just beside and you can go with your spouse!

“Beautifully Restored”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The grounds and interior of this Mosque were lovely and much less crowded than some of the other sights we visited. Alongside the tombs, there's a great view of the Golden Horn from the grounds of this mosque.

“My favorite mosque!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

I've been to other popular mosques in Istanbul and outside of Istanbul, but Suleymaniye Mosque has got to be my favorite. It's spacious, and clean and just beautiful. Words cannot describe how much I adore this mosque. Definitely recommend you to visit and take a look inside.
