View looking at the cenotaphs in the interior of the Türbe of Roxelana.

Looking at the walls note the beautiful blue Iznik tiles, the Arabic freeze, the niches, and the glass windows. 

This structure was designed by the famous architect Sinan and was completed in 1558, the year that Roxelana diedat the age of 60.  Roxelana was a Ukranianian–born concubine that Suleiman took as his wife—an unprecedented step!  She went by the palace name of Hürrem.
