The green mosque mainly refers to the inside. The nearby tomb is much greener. However, the inside of the mosque is more versatile. Every wall deserves special attention. And the atmosphere of course is totally different from the tomb as well.

For me, the top attraction in Bursa is the Yesil Türbe, the mausoleum of the fifth Ottoman Sultan, Mehmed I (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ye%C5%9Fil_T%C3%BCrbe). The incredible green (blue?) tiled tomb, the tranquil environment is a must to see, if you visit Bursa.

The mosque and tiles itself are quite nice and worth the trip. But the surrounding are offers not many choices for places to eat or grab a coffee. Plan to have your lunch or dinner in a more central area after you visit the mosque.

The Yeşil Mosque can be shown as the perfect blend between architecture and embellishment, the proof that such works of art were produced in a country where the battles between siblings had come to an end and peace had returned. It was commissioned by Sultan Mehmed I Çelebi and completed in December 1419 or January 1420.

A fantastic mosque with stunning tiles and much better than the larger ones in Istanbul. Beware as there is a man inside the Mosque who appears to target western visitors and tells an impressive story of how he is restoring the tiles of the Mosque and has been retained by some of the world’s top museums for restoration work.
