Thank you both, I'll check with the Turkish Baha'is first and see what they say. I don't want to bother the world secretariat if I don't have to... Anyway it's helpful to know that visits to these require special arrangements of some sort.
Sultan Salim is a famous mosque in Edirne built by Mimar Sinan, which I very much hope to visit this time on its own merits (and not just for its role in Baha'i / Azali history). Interesting that back then Baha'u'llah, Subh-i-Azal, and their companions basically functioned as Muslims, however sectarian. Think it was Shoghi Rabbani who first made it explicit that the Baha'i religion was a distinct religion, not a form of Islam or an ecumenical society.
