Süleymaniye Mosque

Local nameSüleymaniye Camii
LocationIstanbul, Turkey

Designed by the famous architect Mimar Sinan, this mosque is a spectacular example of Ottoman architecture. And it is full of symbolism, too.

The 4 minarets are said to symbolise that Süleyman was the 4th sultan after the conquest of Constantinople and the 10 balconies should remind all that Süleyman was also the 10th sultan since the foundation of the empire.
