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.

Pretty, but similar to almost every other mosque in Turkey. Once you've seen one, you've seen almost all of them

The mosque has 20 domes, according to the local guide, this feat of 20 domes was a compromise for not building 20 separate mosques by the Sultan as a promise upon winning the battle of Nicopolis in 1396. Whether its true or not, the wonder that is this mosque is incredible to see.

At the city center, next to all the historical places. The interior is nice. We went there as part of our Bursa tour on December 18th .

This mosque is something you must see. It's huge, but very ''warm''. It's very old also. Probably one of most amazing buildings I've seen in my life.
