Suleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul Reviews - Write a Review

  • Honestly forget about the blue mosque, this one is a lot more beautiful, decorated with beautiful stained glass and colorful ceiling calligraphy. Also has great view of thw Bosporus, while being a lot less crowded.

  • Amazingly beautiful mosque, the most beautiful we saw in Istanbul. They had volunteers on site wearing "Ask me" badges, answering questions. Furthermore, it is a "living" place of worship and a wonderful window into a culture different from mine. Best cultural site we did in Istanbul.

  • Mosque of the most famous Ottoman Sultan, Suleyman the Magnificent. Wonderful views of Istanbul, the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. The mosque itself is quite simple, but like Suleyman himself quite Magnificent. Designed my Master Sinan. With Arabic Clarigraphy inscribed on its many half domes. Sultan Suleyman's tomb and that of his wife Hurrem Sultan, as well as other family members can also be found in the Suleymaniye Complex.

  • Suleymaniye is outside Sultanahmet's touristy atmosphere. It's just outside the Grand Bazaar. I'd recommend that you walk to Suleymaniye near sunset hours and watch the day go by. While you're there also enjoy a local dinner with white beans and plain rice.

  • Amazingly beautiful mosque. Not only the building itself, but also it's location and views. It was definitely the most interesting mosque I've visited in Istanbul and it is well worth the walk.
