Suleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul: 75 reviews and 178 photos

In the garden behind the Suleiman Mosque, there are two mausoleums which contain the tombs of sultan Suleiman I (1494-1566), his wife Roxelana, his daughter Mihrimah, his mother Dilashub Saliha and his sister Asiye. He was the tenth and longest-reigning Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, from 1520 to his death in 1566 and is known in the West as Suleiman the Magnificent due to his conquering prowess where he took the Ottoman Empire to its peak. The sultans Suleiman II, Ahmed II and Safiye (died in 1777), the daughter of Mustafa II, are also buried here.
