ISTANBUL - SULEYMANIYE MOSQUE

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

For over four centuries following its completion in 1557, Süleymaniye Mosque was the largest in Istanbul, Turkey, a city famous for its mosques.  Surpassed only in 2019 by the massive Çamlıca Mosque, Süleymaniye Mosque is located on the city's Third Hill, just south of the Golden Horn.  Seen here in this drone video by AirVuz contributor and pilot ucarakkesfet, it's named after Suleiman the Magnificent, the longest-reigning Ottoman sultanate, who ruled from 1520-1556 during the height of Ottoman world power.
