The Mosque Of Suleiman/Suleymaniye (Süleymaniye Camii)

Second in importance and the largest mosque of Istanbul (the most important one is the mosque of Sultan Ahmet), accommodating more than 5,000 believers. The mosque is located in the old part of the city, in the district of Vefa.
The mosque was built by order of Sultan Suleyman the Lawgiver by architect Sinan in the years 1550-1557.
In the courtyard of the mosque is a cemetery or two of the mausoleums rests Suleiman himself and his beloved wife Roxolana. There are versions that the mosque slowly slides into the Golden horn.
Address: Prof. Sıddık Sami Onar Cad. Süleymaniye, Fatih, İstanbul

    Tüm İslam Aleminin Kurban Bayramı Mübarek Olsun..Yaradan bizlere daha çok bayramlar görmeyi nasip etsin inşAllah.

    Camiinin içi kendine ve Mimar Sinan'a kendini hayran bırakır nitelikte.. Cemaatin çoğunluğunun genç olması da bana bir kez daha içten bir 'Elhamdülillah' dedirtti.

    Mütevazı ruhun, ihtişamlı duruşun, zarif düşüncelerin ve sanatsal ustalığın tam olarak içinize sinmesine Süleymaniye demişler işte.
