Suleymaniye Mosque, built by order of sultan Suleyman the Magnificent, is the largest mosque in which city? A. Istanbul B. Mecca C. Cairo D. Mecca
The answer to this weeks travel question is: A. Istanbul The Mosque of Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent (1557) is Istanbul's largest and grandest. The Süleymaniye crowns one of İstanbul's seven hills and dominates the Golden Horn, providing a landmark for the entire city. Though it's not the largest of the Ottoman mosques, it is certainly one of the grandest and most beautiful. It's also unusual in that many of its original külliye (mosque complex) buildings have been retained and sympathetically adapted for reuse. Commissioned by Süleyman I, known as 'The Magnificent', the Süleymaniye was the fourth imperial mosque built in İstanbul and it certainly lives up to its patron's nickname. The mosque and its surrounding buildings were designed by Mimar Sinan, the most famous and talented of all imperial architects. Sinan's türbe (tomb) is just outside the mosque's walled garden, next to a disused medrese building. The mosque was built between 1550 and 1557. Its setting and plan are particularly pleasing, featuring gardens and a three-sided forecourt with a central domed ablutions fountain. The four minarets with their 10 beautiful şerefes (balconies) are said to represent the fact that Süleyman was the fourth of the Osmanlı sultans to rule the city and the 10th sultan after the establishment of the empire. In the garden behind the mosque is a terrace offering lovely views of the Golden Horn. The street underneath once housed the külliye's arasta (street of shops), which was built into the retaining wall of the terrace. Close by was a five-level mülazim (preparatory school).

Shiretoko Peninsula Hokkaido is Japan’s most untamed island, with ragged peaks, surf-beaten shorelines, thick forests, and gorgeous lakes. While its capital city, Sapporo and the ski resort of Niseko are well known, huge areas of the island see few visitors. Off the beaten track in Hokkaido’s far northeast is the Shiretoko Peninsula, an extraordinary mountainous and forested landscape protected within a national park
