Photographer's Note

The Süleymaniye Mosque, built on the order of Sultan Süleyman (Süleyman the Magnificent), was fortunate to be able to draw on the talents of the architectural genius of Mimar Sinan (481 Traditions and Encounters: Brief Global History). The construction work began in 1550 and the mosque was finished in 1557.

This vast religious complex called the Süleymaniye...blended Islamic and Byzantine architectural elements. It combines tall, slender minarets with large domed buildings supported by half domes in the style of the Byzantine church Hagia Sophia (which the Ottomans converted into the mosque of Aya Sofya)
