Süleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul

Süleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul

One of Istanbul's biggest mosques, Süleymaniye Mosque is built on top of the third hill of the seven hills in the city. It's hard to miss over the Golden Horn, Bosporus’ primary inlet.

Its architecture and size are awe-inspiring. It is considered one of the masterpieces of the legendary architect Mimar Sinan. The mosque is the epitome of an impressive design with an emphasis on space and light. Four buttresses are incorporated into the walls of the building, creating that open and airy feel.

With an elegantly decorated interior, you won't stop at simply looking at it from afar. The mosque has four minarets, a forecourt with a central domed ablutions fountain, gardens, and other magnificent features.

Go to the garden behind the mosque for a lovely view of the Bosporus and the Golden Horn.

Inside the mosque complex is a religious school, library, hospital, soup kitchen, caravanserai, bazaar, and several tombs, including that of Süleyman the Magnificent and his wife.

The mosque is open between 9 am and 6 pm but is closed during prayer times.

You have the option to explore it to your heart’s content or visit three other iconic sights within a day. Book a tour with La Vacanza today.
