Facts

  • One of the masterpieces of the great Ottoman architect Sinan, the building was ordered by Suleiman The Magnificent, and built in seven years between 1550 and 1557. Sinan was deeply impressed by Byzantine architecture, and especially the Haghia Sophia, which evidently influenced his work in the Suleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul (Constantinople); and his later and greater masterpiece, the Selimiye Mosque in Edirne (Adrianople).
