    Description :

    “The beauty I see in the Süleymaniye Mosque is in its lines, in the elegant spaces beneath its dome, in the opening out of its sides dome, in the proportions of its walls and empty spaces, in the counterpoint of its support towers and its little arches, in its whiteness and in the purity of the lead on its domes – none of which could be called picturesque. Even four hundred years after it was built, I can look at Süleymaniye and see a mosque still standing in its entirety, just as it first did, and see it was meant to be seen.”
