Most Impressive Mosque Of Istanbul
Due to the limited time and high number of attractions elsewhere in Istanbul, there is a place which is ussually ignored: Splendid Süleymaniye Mosque. The massive complex was built in Ottoman times for the public and it consists of madrasa, library, shops, hospital, school and Turkish bath.

It was dedicated to Ottoman Empire's most famous Sultan, who is widely known as Suleiman the Magnificent, plus it was built by the most talented Turkish architect: Sinan. The mosque is located on the dominant hill of Historical Peninsula and is quite an eyeful building.
