After the Hagia Sophia, the Suleiman Mosque with its four minarets is one of the best-known and most beautiful mosques in the city. Dominated by its mighty 53 m high dome, the building was constructed for Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent by Sinan, the famous architect, in the middle of the 19th century. The four minarets symbolise that Suleiman was the fourth sultan since the conquest of Constantinople. The four minarets together have ten tower galleries as a symbol of the fact that he was the tenth sultan of the Ottoman Empire. The model was built in 1968 and therefore belongs to the older generation of exhibits in Minimundus. Thanks to its diverse architecture and several phases of restoration, however, it has lost none of its original attractiveness.
