I dont know how didi I forgot this mosque..
Suleymaniye Mosque is one of the greatest mosques of Istanbul.. It is located behind the Istanbul Univercity.. It can also be seen from the Eminonu pier.. It was constructed on the highest point of the hill to be seen from everywhere..
The mosquee has been constructed on 1556 by Suleyman the Magnificient.. The mosque has 4 minarets, representing that Sultan Suleyman is the forth sultan after the Conquest of Istanbul and 10 balconies on the minarets represents that the Sultan Suleyman is the 10th Sultan of the Ottoman Empire..
The mosquee has three entrances.. Inside the mosquee you will be dazzled. Suppose the best alternative after Blue mosque.. The tomn of Sultan Suleyman is also in the Garden of the Mosquee
