Magnificent little soul house

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).

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.
