Selimiye Mosque, Edirne

4.9
Completed in 1575, Selimiye Mosque is a World Heritage Site that demonstrates the cultural elevation and strength of the Ottoman Empire. As you approach the mosque, observe the four slender minarets that reach 83 m (272 ft). The mosque's simple stone and marble facade impresses, while the interior is completely symmetrical and lacks excessive detailing. Although visually pleasing, its main purpose was to remind the sultans that humility and faith would bring them closer to God. After visiting the site, head to the nearby gardens for a rest.

  • This is a "must see" location in Edirne. Constructed by well known Ottoman architect "Mimar Sinan" for Selim the Second. Sinan finished construction when he was 90 and called this mosque as "My mastership work".
  • Great place! I really like it! If you’re in town you must visit it.
  • One of the best mosque I've ever seen.
  • Masterpiece of Othman empire in the fist capital before istanbul
  • Most amazingly beautiful mosque. From the moment I saw it from distance I felt very excited and as I got closer and entered my heart was trembling and I was lost for words. One can feel and breathe history here.
