The design is not so traditional for a mosque. The marbel door represents the 99 names of the god that is written in the quran. The name comes from the inside colour of the mosque

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
