SULEYMANIYE MOSQUE

Built by the orders of mighty Sultan Suleyman, the splendid mosque complex rises majestically above the Golden Horn. The amazing complex was built ingeniously by the greatest Ottoman master architect Sinan in the 16th century.

The mosque is an architectural twin of its commissioner. Colossal yet elegantly decorated with plain grandeur, the imperial mosque is reflecting Sultan Suleyman’s humility before God as a pious believer.

GRAND BAZAAR

A feast of colors and a paradise for shoppers… The ancient Grand Bazaar is the oldest shopping mall in the world. It is an endless, twenty gated maze of covered streets lined with artisan shops, vibrant stores filled with colorful glassware, gold, silver, jewelery, kilims, hamam towels, antiques and souvenirs. The bazaar might be an exotic attraction for visitors, but it is a favorite shopping mecca for the locals as well.

SPICE MARKET 

A very fragrant, traditional bazaar filled with shops and stalls overflowing with spices, nuts, dried fruit, Turkish delight and tea. The 350 year old building is infused with the aroma of cardamom, coriander, saffron, cumin, oregano and mint and has always been an indispensable part of the bustling Golden Horn trade district. You can shop for spices with confidence since they can be vacuum packed for you to comfortably travel with.
