Built in the 14th century, this mosque is an excellent example of classical Ottoman architecture. Of special interest are the intricately carved wooden pulpit, and the three-tiered fountain.

The mosque has a beautiful interior architecture. The fountains inside the mosque create a serene environment. Worth visiting for people who loves to see beautiful designed wall tiles which Turkey is famous for.

A typical and beautiful mosque frequented by locals, peaceful and not touristic like others! You must visit it when visiting Bursa

This mosque is beautiful! The place is not only for show but is functioning too. Real people pray there. And to me, that is a plus as the camii is not there to show only architectural wonder but also the religion under it. The fountain was amazing and seems to be people's favorite. Many took pictures there. Very nice place.... More

Beautiful interior. Just go there and relaxing atmosphere. Of course the wooden works are very impressive, but there are also other hidden gems.

When you visit Bursa you certainly have to visit the Great mosque. I liked this mosque because of the nice kalligrafi, the drawing of 'the planets'. The prayer area for men is nice, that for women is very small.
