27 reviews of Süleymaniye Mosque

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.

The Impessive Süleymaniye Mosque

Excellent

For me, this was one of the most impressive mosques. The space and light it has are amazing. Also, it was not crowded with tourists because it is more secluded. Do not miss it!

Musafir Restaurant

The Mosque of Suleiman the Magnificent is considered one of the greatest masterpieces of the area. Unfortunately, the monument is under renovation for the next two years, so you cannot go in, though you can visit the beautiful garden. When completed it will be one of the most beautiful monuments in Turkey.

Great view

Right behind the Spice Bazaar, with a great view over the Golden Horn.

Currently in renovation, but a great...
