The ‘Kanuni Sultan Süleyman Camii’ (Mosque of Süleyman the Magnificent) is the second historic mosque of Mudurnu. It lies west of the 'Yıldırım Camii'. There is a graveyard in its garden.
In the absence of a building inscription, dating it is somewhat hazardous; if the oral tradition is right, it should be between 1520 and 1566.
