The Sü lemaniye Mosque in Istanbul was completed in 1557. The mosque is covered by a huge central dome. Below the dome the light enters the mosque through a series of arched and circular windows. Like all mosques, the Sü lemaniye Mosque has a mihrab, the niche that indicates the direction of prayer.
