The magnificent work of the Ottoman ascension revolution. This work, which was built in the form of a külliye, was initiated by Mîmar Sinân under the order of Sultan Suleyman Han of Kânûnî, who built the first stone on the foundation of the tomb of Shaykh al-Islam Ebessi al-Efendin between 1550-1557. In the Kulliyesi; There are also madrasah, school, dârülhadîs, dârüşşifâ, imâret, tabhâne, bîmârhâne, caravanserai, medical school, hamam, rooms and shops, and Kununi Sultan Süleyman Han and Hürrem Sultan.
It is a great success, in time, that a large mulberry, which Mimar Sinan described as my royal work, was built in a short time. On 16th of August, 1557, a ceremony was held by Mîmar Sinan in a time where Kâunîn Sultan Süleymân Han and all the state ricâlin were present.
The place where the Suleymaniye mausoleum is located is a dominant place in Istanbul. The harem part of the cave, which is rectangular with its courtyard, measures 68×63 m. The flat pendant dome, 26,50 m in height and 53 m in height, sits on four thick belts and has thirty-two windows with round arches. One of the columns was brought from Topkapı Palace, one from Kıztaşı, one from Alexandria and the other from Baalbek. There are two half domes on the side of the altar and sentence gate. At the side, there are three pointed arched galleries resting on two marble columns with mukarnas heads between the feet. Gabi gets light from 138 windows. Almost acoustic and ventilation is an orderly process. The voice of a person who reads the Qur’ân-i karim in the mihrab can reach the ear of someone farthest away from the same tune without the need of a lifting amplifier or speaker.
Two of the four minarets of Jain are on the two sides of the northern edge of the inner courtyard, and the two are honorable. The other two are in three corners and located at the corners of the back pocket. The external appearance of Jama is an example of harmony when viewed from every direction. Half-dome, weight boxes, small dome in the corners are made with very fine calculations to lighten the pressure of the big dome. Satisfaction is aesthetic, the beauty of the lines and the shame in terms of perfection.
By opening a hollow cell on the underside of the feet holding the dome, the weight of the feet is lifted and the uniformity is removed. Thus, the inner and outer harmony of the king was settled as an example for the generations. The ten bars in the minarets are the signs that Kanuni is the tenth sultan. Those with three honors are 63.80 m high. All marble works, writings, tiles, ivory and mother of pearl are the best examples of devrin. Almost all the writings are written by Karahisârî Ahmed Efendi and his request Hasan Çelebi.
