The Suleymaniye Imperial Mosque is regarded by many as the most beautiful of the imperial mosques and is where Suleymaniye and his wife Roxelane are buried. It was built between 1550-1557 by the architect Sinan . It is built on the crest of a hill and is conspicuous for its great size and has four minarets at each corner of the courtyard. Make sure you make a small donation at the entry to the mosque. 1ytl
