Overview

Famed architect Sinan built this majestic structure for one of the greatest rulers of the Ottoman Empire. Although this mosque is less ornate, there are many similarities between it and the Hagia Sophia since the same architect was responsible for both.

The most Beautiful mosque. So much history. Great view. Sultan Suleiman is buried here, together with his mother and one of his children. There are many wild dogs, but they are sweet

We caught the tram to the Grand Bazaar then it was about a 15 min walk to the mosque. The cemetery outside was filled with purple iris flowers and was well tended and peaceful. The gardens outside the mosque presented stunning views across the Bosphoros....More

Among many mosques in Istanbul, Suleymaniye was some how the most peaceful one, especially it's harem (garden) with magnificent views of the whole city of Istanbul.

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside

I agree with the others who have answered so far. The best decision I made was getting myself a data package as soon as I landed. That way, I could read up on any place when I was there or before going.
