Strolling Through Istanbul book cover with Süleymaniye Mosque. Istanbul, Turkey.

Süleymaniye Camii (Süleymaniye Mosque) was built on the order of Sultan Süleyman (Süleyman the Magnificent) and designed by imperial architect Mimar Sinan on the Golden Horn, Istanbul, Turkey

"The Süleymaniye is the second largest but by far the finest and most magnificent of the imperial mosque complexes in the city. It is a fitting monument to its founder, Süleyman the Magnificent, and a masterwork of the greatest of Ottoman architects, the incomparable Sinan. The mosque itself, the largest of Sinan’s works, is perhaps inferior in perfection of design to that master’s Selimiye at Edirne, but it is incontestably the most important Ottoman building in Istanbul. For four and a half centuries it has attracted the wonder and enthusiasm of all travellers to the city" (Strolling Through Istanbul: The Classic Guide to the City [Tauris Parke Paperbacks]).
