Suleymaniye Cami , Istanbul

4.8
Witness the work of famed Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan at , a majestic religious structure that dominates the Golden Horn and shares similarities with Hagia Sophia. This mosque was commissioned by Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in 1550 and completed seven years later. Though it may be less ornate than other elaborate religious structures in the city, the mosque's Byzantine influence has gained it recognition for its blend of architectural styles. Having experienced damage from natural disasters and wars over the centuries, the building is fully restored and now one of the most popular attractions in Istanbul.

  • You know, I find Suleymaniye Mosque Holy, why, because March 17, 2018 year I left there a bag, walked with her girlfriends photographed. Then left already for the territory, where I noticed that the bags that I have. It has been more than 30 minutes. I returned there and scared she stands and waits for me and no one touch to it. There have been dollars, Lira, rubles and salary card. Therefore, I advise everyone to visit this mosque. There give the Qur'an translated into Russian language. Now I read the Koran, to learn better the Muslim world.

  • Unique mosque commissioned by sultan Süleyman the magnificent and built by architect Sinan on one of the 7 hills of Istanbul. The garden behind the mosque offers a Masterful perspective on the tip of the Golden Horn and Galata bridge. Visit the student quarter of Vefa then typical with its small wooden Ottoman houses and drinking a boza to Vefa Bozacisi.
