„Suleymaniye Mosque II“

Picture ID: 070cb45

The Suleymaniye Mosque was built on the order of Sultan Suleyman.

Situated at the top of a hill dominating the Kantarc?lar district between the Ministry of Wlar and the Office of the Sheikhulislam, the Suleymaniye soars majestically towards the sky with nothing to hinder its ascent. From the vast platform of its enclosure, one captures at a single glance Europe and Asia, the two seas that bathe Istanbul, and the smiling Princes Isles.
