Worth visiting, loved it more than the Blue Mosque. A lot of history involved in the development and building of this mosque.

Get there in the morning and get less of a crowd! Regardless of the time, it is 100% worth visiting and seeing in person. Such a stunning location.

This easily my favourite mosque in Istanbul, it's architecture and size are incredible. So serene and peaceful inside. Some lovely eateries just outside the mosque complex and a stones throw from the bazars.

The mosque of Sultan Suleyman Khan needs no introduction. It is one of the top 5-6 'must visit' sights in Istanbul. It remains an impressive edifice and well worth visiting.

The Mosque is a beautiful, quiet spot. Perhaps not quite as popular a "must see" as the Blue Mosque, but we found it every bit as impressive - without masses of other tourists. L

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
