Wouldn't have gone looking for this mosque if not for the Rick Steves guide book, but so very glad we did. The Suleyman Mosque is one of the most beautiful mosques I have ever seen (from an architecture standpoint I thought it was more beautiful than the famous Blue Mosque).
It is out of the way from the other standout attractions of Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque but although it was a bit of a walk we didn't have trouble finding it. Again, totally worth the effort. It was designed by Mimar Sinan (Sinan the architect) for the Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent and Sinan's story just adds to the greatness of his structure.
