About this place

Maybe you´ll be surprised but this is actually the largest mosque in the city. It was built by Sultan Suleyman (also known as Suleyman the Magnificent) in the second half of the 16th century. Some hundred years after the completion of the mosque it suffered a serious damage by a great fire. It was completely restored in the 19th century. Sadly, the mosque, because of another fire had to be restored again after the II World War.

as it is already mentioned this is the largest mosque in the city. It is 59 m long and 58 meters wide. This is not only a mosque, it is an entire complex consisting of the prayer hall, courtyard, caravanserai, a bath house, Qur'an school, a hospital and a kitchen. Behind the mosque, in the garden, one can see two mausoleums which include the tombs of Sultan Suleyman I and his family along with several other Sultans and nobilities.
