Doors of Süleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul
The Süleymaniye Mosque is an Ottoman imperial mosque located on the Third Hill of Istanbul, Turkey. It is the second largest mosque in the city and its largest Ottoman-era mosque. It is a beautiful building. An architectural wonder. And it has some very pretty doors. We visited it on a very cold and grey day so the external shots don’t do justice to it.
Thanks very much, Jackie!
Breathtakingly beautiful. This style of architecture is so impressive to me. I would have been walking around with my jaw dragging on the ground all day long. It must have been quite a special visit.
I just realized I responded to this comment somewhere else! 😳 It is really stunning and I shall post other photos of the place highlighting the beautiful details.
Great doors and photos of the Mosque. Wish I traveled to Turkey before all of the world’s unrest in the region so I’ll have to see that country through other people’s eyes.
Thanks! I know what you mean. We postponed visiting Turkey for years. But everybody we know went and had no problems, so we decided to risk and just go to Istanbul. It was worth it.
