Create an itinerary including Suleymaniye Cami
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.

  • Definitely a must see when in this part of Istanbul. Beautiful mosque. You also get a nice view of the city and the water. Make sure and walk all the way around the site to see all parts of it.

  • Great architecture. Amazing place to visit during your trip to Istanbul. We went there since the blue mosque was under renovation . It’s very peaceful to look at the sea from the lawns of the building. Do visit it when you’ve time in Istanbul .
  • I do not know too much about the history happened in Turkey, but this gorgeous Mosque could tell the golden time before. In terms of the beauty of the architecture, the arc and dome vault presents the most classic Mosque style, great heritages for the upcoming generations to enjoy and learn. It is a place you cannot miss in Istanbul.
