La mosquée Süleymaniye (en turc Süleymaniye Camii) est une mosquée impériale ottomane d'Istanbul, conçue par l'architecte Sinan pour le sultan Soliman le Magnifique et construite de 1550 à 1557.
Les caractéristiques architecturales du monument en font l'un des plus remarquables de son genre : ses proportions harmonieuses — les dimensions intérieures de la mosquée sont de 70 m de long sur 61 m de large ; la lumière qui pénètre par les 138 fenêtres ; le dôme en cascade — de 27,5 m de diamètre et de 47,75 m de hauteur depuis le sol jusqu'à la clé de voûte —, percé de 32 fenêtres, supporté sur les côtés par des demi-coupoles. La mosquée est dotée d'un parvis à portiques couronnés de 28 dômes supportés par 24 colonnes monolithes antiques (2 en porphyre, 10 en marbre blanc et 12 en granite). Au centre de la cour se trouve un « şadırvan » (fontaine d'ablutions).

As many writers have noted, this is a beautiful mosque that gets only light tourist traffic. I visited on a Sunday morning and there were only a couple dozen tourists. It has been recently restored, so all the colors are vibrant. It has a great view of the Bosporus as well.

Located on the Third Hill of of the city, it's the second largest mosque. Built in 1557, its architecture has more European influences than the traditional ottoman mosques. In my opinion is the most beautiful mosque in the city, the gardens, the location and the outstanding sights of the city from the hill will leave you in awe; definitely better than the views from the Galata tower.

An outstanding example of Ottoman architecture and by at least a couple measures the largest mosque in Istanbul. The courtyard terrace has amazing views of the city, and the bazaar across the street is popular with locals. This mosque isn't nearly as popular with tourists as the Blue Mosque, so offers a quieter and more personal experience.

One of the best works of Great Architect Sinan. A must-see attraction in Istanbul. It has a wonderful Bosphorus view too. Don't miss it!

One of the magnificent works of the great architect Sinan. It has fantastic view of the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus. It is far from the crowd and one can find peace there... a must visit place if in Istanbul.

We caught the tram to the Grand Bazaar stop and then just go straight down the street to the left of the Grand Bazaar. The Mosque is a 10-15 minutes walk from the Grand Bazaar and passes plenty of shops before turning left up the hill to the Mosque. Just before the Mosque is a lovely cemetery with irises growing amongst the headstones. After going through the cemetery there is a delightful terrace which offers magnificent views of the Bosporus and the rest of Istanbul. The domes and 4 minarets of the Mosque also make a good picture from the terrace and we then walked into the outer courtyard of the Mosque which was very peaceful after the huge crowds around the Blue Mosque. The inside of the Mosque was closed to visitors as it was prayer time when we were there but it was still well worth visiting for the views of the Bosporus.

Massive complex. Great experience especially at prayer time. Walking distance to grand bazaar. Worth the walk.

Beautiful mosque atop the hill top. For ladies they provide long dresses and scarfs to wear to go in to see the inside. The architecture and decoration is breathtaking.

Few words how to describe.... Amazing. Even not been Muslim you can feel the spirituality of the place.

One of the perks of being the longest-reigning sultan in the Ottoman Empire is that you get to build mosques with your name on them. Suleiman The Magnificent, as he became known, must have skipped over the parts of the Quran that call for loving thy neighbor, as he spent the majority of the forty four years of his sultancy trying to wipe them off the map. He led the Ottoman expansion across Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, presided over the “golden age” of his empire’s cultural development, and is buried here in the mosque that bears his name, the largest in Istanbul, and alongside his wife, Hurrem Haseki Sultan, who started out, incredibly, as a Christian called Roxelana, and later one of his harem.

Beautiful place to visit and fascinating to learn more about the history and background of Islam in Turkey. The volunteers at the mosque are very helpful and informative and it is such a beautiful building. It is nice to be able to explore places like this. The inside of the mosque is closed during prayer times but the grounds are also good to walk around while you wait for it to reopen.

A large mosque with lovely gardens and views over the Bosporus. It was built by Sultan Suleiman, one of the longest reigning monarch of the Ottoman Empire. A highlight of my visit was a long discussion with an Imam about Islam- fascinating how similar the “different” religions are.

The largest and oldest Mosque in Istanbul. At the time, build to rival Haigia Sophia Basilica e.g. to show that whatever Christians can build, Muslims can build just as well. Impressive architecture. A must see, when in Istanbul.

من أشهر الأماكن السياحية في اسطنبول. يجب زيارته والاستمتاع بالإطلالة على اسطنبول من الأعلى. الجامع كبير جدا و المساحات المحيطة أيضا واسعة. يعتبر مزار لأخذ الصور التذكارية و صور احتفالات الزواج. خلف المسجد توجد عدة مطاعم تقدم الوجبات التركية التقليدية و الأكلات الشعبية. يوجد أيضا محلات لبيع القطع التذكارية و التحفيات والمشغولات التذكارية. شاهد الصور واذا أعجبتك، لا تنسى الضغط على الإعجاب بالصور.

Great historical place. Its a mosque so apparently you have to wear modest cloths when visiting. Consider having a piece of cloths to cover your hair (only women) and if you don’t have one they will provide you one to use and return later. You will take your shoes off before entering the inside part. You are expected to be quiet and respectful as its a religious place and some people are praying or worshiping and they don’t want to be disturbed. Entrance is totally free of charge dont let anyone fool you and ask for money. معلم تاريخي و ديني رائع جدا. سمي السلمانية لأن السلطان سليمان هو من امر بإنشاءه و دفن في الباحة الخلفية للجامع.

Very beautiful mosque and you have a spectacular view outside overlooking the city. A bit troublesome to get there but not too bad. Recommend a visit here when you travel to Istanbul, it’s a nice walk just to get there
