You need to visit this place if you are interested about Islamic culture. My wife and me visited Suleymaniye Mosque Info Center, we were welcomed by incredibly kind people, they showed perfect hospitality and knowledge about Islamic culture and we learned a lot about Suleymaniye Mosque as well. It was a lovely day, thank for your selfless efforts and kind attitude. God bless you!

Great cultural center You should definitely walk-in and grab a cup of tea with the volunteers here. They give you information about the mosque, Islam and lots of interesting cultural details. There is also a 10 minutes daily presentation, which is very useful I must admit, during the prayer times. If you’re lucky you may even taste some traditional baklava 🙂

Wonderful people, marvelous place! I fully recommend the Center! It’s a must for every culture and history enthusiast, but also for an average Joe. The people there are very kind and open hearted, they are a great source of knowledge about the Turkish culture, about Islam and Suleymani Mosque. I was gifted with a beautiful album about the mosques in Istanbul and a great shopping bag. (guys, I’ll be using that all the time, I love it!) The Center is located in a magnificent old Ottoman style building, where you can feel most welcomed thanks to a hospitality of the charming hosts! I hope that my paths with Fatih and other volunteers will cross again because they are absolutely fantastic human beings. Cheers!

Something new Me and friends were yesterday hosted by the cultural center. They welcomed and took the time to show us around. I would recommend it for a visit if you are interested or have questions about Turkey and Islam

Nett & Gastfreundlich Die Leute sind sehr nett. Es sind freiwillige liebe Menschen die immer türkischen Tee und ein Lächeln bereit haben. Außerdem wird die Tür jedem geöffnet, der klingelt. Sie setzten das islamische “Vakif”-Prinzip um, in dem man dem/der Reisenden etwas zu essen anbietet und ihm/ihr Gastfreundlichkeit zeigt. Außerdem haben sie Präsentationen zur Süleymaniye-Moschee und der islamischen Kultur im Allgemeinen
