Suleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul: 75 reviews and 178 photos
Just adjacent to the mosque itself is the resting place of Suleymaniye himself, a small tomb and many, MANY, graves surrounding it....if you cant' be near the great in your lifetime you can at least be buried NEAR THEM. Some of the grave markers were very ornate and beautifully sculpted. The script in Arabic is also looks very graceful and flowing. Yet many were simple, bordering on plain. It seems that even in death, equality is not reached, or at least not what we can see here on "this side".
Address: Mimar Sinan Cad, Suleymaniye,
