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 mosque is nearby the aqueduct. The dome is similar to that of blue mosque, the way to the mosque is hilly so be sure to use comfortable walking shoes.

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.
