„The Mosque of Suleiman is one of the most prominent landmarks in Rhodes, and remains a popular site for tourists. Although it has been closed to visitors pending restoration work since 2014.”

 

The Suleymaniye Mosque or the Mosque of Suleiman (Turkish: Süleymaniye Camii) is a mosque originally built after the Ottoman conquest of Rhodes in 1522 and reconstructed in 1808. It was named by Sultan Suleiman to commemorate his conquest of Rhodes. The mosque overlooks Rhodes and has an octagonal plan with three domes, one central dome larger than those at each corner.

This is the first mosque in the town of Rhodes, built soon after Ottomans besieged it and captured it. The current building is a reconstruction from 1808 which used stone, brick, plaster, columns, and arches from older buildings to create an intricate space that would have been common for someone coming into worship centuries ago.

The Mosque of Suleiman is one of the most prominent landmarks in Rhodes, and remains a popular site for tourists. Although it has been closed to visitors pending restoration work since 2014, you can still enjoy its design from the street outside. The mosque sits conveniently on top of an old Turkish bazaar.

Near the Mosque you can find several quality restaurants and small art stores, and you can enjoy spectacular views especially at night from rooftop restaurants nearby!
