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.

Once you're in the mosque the beauty... More

On our way to the skiing reorts of Bursa we spent an hour touring this area. The ancient masjid is sorrounded by a beautiful gardens. Atmosphere is peaceful. There is a very old turkish bath and a couple of shops in the neighborhood. Good site to visit.

I think, this little mosque is in my top five list in Turkey. Full of spirit. Different hues of turquoise, little rooms, intaglio tiles makes this place different and special.

This is a Mosque that was built adjacent to the Sultan's Office. The Sultan used to meet with his Ministers in some quarters the visitor can see when he enters the Mosque, on his right . I was accompanied by my wife when I visited Bursa in December 2014. The history of the Mosque was briefly narrated to us by... More

The Green Mosque is nice with its two fountains (one outside the entrance for ablution and one just in the middle of the prayer zone). Just opposite the Mosque there is the Mausoleum of the local sultan. The square is animated with people going up and down for prayer and there are also nice old women trying to convince turists...
