Suleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul is in my humble opinion definitely more impressive and less touristy than the more famous Blue Mosque. But don't just visit the mosque when you are there. Located in the same complex behind the mosque are the tombs of the legendary Suleiman and his infamous wife Roxelana,which are breaktaking in their own right. But most of all , the fact that these famous characters are actually buried there imparts a most wonderful sense of history to the place.
