The mosque might look average from the outside, but the inside design, decorations and distribution of spaces makes it very beautiful and unique, the basin in the middle is beautiful and adds to the serenity of the mosque.

This mosque is unusually beautiful, featuring unusual Persian tile work in turquoise shades, and very simple, almost austere, but extremely elegant interior. Don't miss!

This small, older mosque has beautiful ceramic tiles and is definitely worth a visit. Some research in advance or a local guide will help you to fully appreciate it.

The walk to the Mosque was pleasant through the city streets. Quaint park grounds that you can sit and enjoy the view. Did not feel rushed with our visit. Won't miss the visit to the Mosque while in Bursa. Extremely wonderful

This mosque is a real revelation. From the beautiful inset marble entrance canopy to the blue-green tiles of the interior, the space is full of life and colour, but with an underlying glory and a sense of peace. The Mihrab (a sort of huge fireplace like structure that indicates the direction of Mecca and therefore the direction in which to... More
