Peaceful and beautiful mosque
This beautiful mosque located just across from the University of Istanbul is one of the hidden treasures of the city. The fact that it's not in the über-touristy neighborhood of Sultanahmet means that many people gloss over it entirely. One of the advantages of the Süleymaniye Mosque is that there's no entrance fee and the lack of crowds means you can enjoy its interior in peace and quiet. Keep in mind that this is not the touristy Blue Mosque where it seems like anything goes...this is an active mosque where silence and respect are required.
The mosque stands out for its grand size and the simplicity of its decorative elements.
