Fodor's Review

A rare collection of Turkish, Persian, and Arab manuscripts, including many rare Korans, founded in 1794, is a striking reminder of the Ottoman presence. The collection and the adjacent Mosque of Suleyman are still used by those members of Rhodes's Turkish community who stayed in Rhodes after the 1923 population exchange, a mass repatriation of Greek and Turkish migrants.
