Owner description: Famed architect Sinan built this majestic structure for one of the greatest rulers of the Ottoman Empire. Although this mosque is less ornate, there are many similarities between it and the Hagia Sophia since the same architect was responsible for both.

In my opinion this is the best and most beautiful mosque in Istanbul. The interior decoration and artwork is brighter and much more pleasing to the eye than that of Sultan Ahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque). The surrounding courtyard is also a good place to relax and unwind. Also from the courtyard you can get great views of the Golden Horn!

One of the most spectacular structure in Istanbul. You can witness the spirit in the mosque if you go there around 9:00 am. And take a stroll around the complex.
