View looking at the cenotaphs in the interior of the Türbe of Süleyman.  Besides his cenotaph there are those of his daughter and two later sultans: Suleiman II and Ahmet II.

Looking at the walls, from bottom to top, note the Iznik tiles, the Arabic freeze, the marble paneling, and the colorful glass windows. 

This structure was designed by the famous architect Sinan and was completed in 1566, the year that Suleiman the Magnificent died.
