Suleiman the Magnificent Mosque

Although it is a sultan's mosque, the building, which draws attention with its single minaret plan, was built in 1552 by the order of Suleiman the Magnificent, who started the rise of the Ottoman Empire. The Kanuni Sultan Süleyman Mosque, located in the Belen district of Hatay, has been open to Muslims for almost 500 years. The mosque, which has a hidden splendor with its age-defying structure and palace-like interior architecture, is one of the most rooted structures of the city. The mosque, which was built in 1553 by the order of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, who started the rise of the Ottoman Empire and became famous for his justice, draws attention with its single minaret despite being a sultan's place of worship. Suleiman the Magnificent Mosque, which looks quite modest from the outside but fascinates those who see it with its thick walls, depth in its architecture and mystical aura, is one of the most beautiful Ottoman works in Hatay. The mosque, which has a square plan, takes people on a journey to a different time period with the magnificence of the meticulous calligraphy and the harmony in the stained glass. The mosque, whose architect is not known exactly, is considered to be the architect Sinan in parallel with its magnificence of simplicity. Suleiman the Magnificent Mosque, which is one of the fingerprints of the Ottoman Empire in the city of Hatay, amazes all its guests who come to see it in terms of religious and cultural tourism.
