    wow. amazing view of mosque from inside. glad to know that you enjoyed your trips to mosque.

  3. Thanks for taking me back to Turkey! My favorite was the Sulemaniye mosque simply because it was quieter, less crowded, and allowed me to really take in the details without being jostled by tour groups. They’re both beautiful and worth visiting. Did you get to any of the smaller mosques in town?

      Thanks Lauren! Yes I did visit other mosques in Istanbul – such as the Shehzade mosque nearby and a bunch of other places in the old city as well as the Asian side. I enjoyed them, especially the Sinan-styled ones. :)

    We were there back in September and absolutely agree – both mosques are worth visiting. The crowds at the Blue Mosque were pretty impressive, but Süleymaniye was tranquil and offered amazing views of Istanbul and the Bosphorus. Thanks for sharing!

  8. The interiors of those two mosques are just unbelievable gigantic, It’s hard to think they were able to build them back then. I think we’d struggle even with all our modern-day technology
