Suleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul: 75 reviews and 178 photos
Süleymaniye Camii stands on top of a hill and can be seen from many places in Istanbul. It is the largest mosque in Istanbul and it was built only in seven years, in 1550 - 1557. The mosque was built by the great architect Sinan for Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent.
The interior is huge and very nice. Four columns are supporting the dome. There is little decoration other then some Iznik tiles and stained glass windows.
The courtyard is a pleasant place.
