This place is truly a gem among all mosques in Istanbul. Its super grand looking and at the same time very peaceful and calm compared to the over crowded Blue Mosque. Spend some time to soak up the sacred atmosphere you won't regret it.

This is one of the most beautiful mosques I've seen. Really pretty on the outside as well as on the inside. Definitely worth visiting when you're going to 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

Hello Gregory, The Blue Mosque is not Süleymaniye Mosque. The latter was renovated some years ago. Are you sure you mean the Blue Mosque? It is Sultanahmet Mosque.

The first prayer call is a dawn and the last at sunset. Most guide books will give you the approximate times but it varies by season. If you get to the mosque during prayer, visit the cemetery and the final resting place... More
