This mosque and government building is recently restored UNESCO site. The ceilings in some areas show a nice before and after the restoration. Other notable features include the mosque raised higher than the rest to separate it from the government offices where judges and others worked and marble fountain. Worth 20 minutes of your time if you are in Bursa.... More

The love and workmanship is evident in this impressive structure. You can get tired of seeing places of worship, but never the human input that brings them about.

Green is definitely the colour of Bursa. Its most famous mosque complex is decorated in green tiles. An entire neighbourhood is named “Green”. Despite the urban sprawl, there’s a generous amount of parks and trees, and the city is surrounded by a green landscape. Although Blue mosque has made Istanbul very famous I think this Mosque is magnificent and worth... More

The Mosque represents the old things of Bursa especially on Ottoman empire. I was wondered to see the Mosque, very old but still well maintained.

We visited this Mosque with our rental car which presents it's challenges however we found the quaint Mosque a delight to visit and worth the effort. It might have been the caretaker who showed us the Sultan's meeting room, now his office, and gave us a tour in very broken English. This place had a closeness which you miss in... More

The Green Mosque is one of the top destinations in Bursa. While I don't know much about its history, that isn't really needed to admire its architecture and the different mosaics and engravings inside. A must see in Bursa.

One of the most beautiful landmarks in Bursa. Bursa is an amazing city. Once the capitol of th Ottoman Empire many sultans build complexes adjacent to a mosque. Yesil(Green) Mosque is decorated with bautiful green-blue-turquoise tiles. The mosque was commissioned by Sultan Mehmed I Çelebi and completed in December 1419 or January 1420. Once you're in the mosque the beauty... More
