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.

very large and impressive mosque. Beautiful calligraphy and very welcoming. Surroundings are great too and give a good view of the interesting domes for a roof.

An ancient mosque with beautifully exceptional decorations that went centuries back. It is a must visit for muslim travellers. The prophet Khidir was said to have performed prayers in this mosque.

A bright and quiet mosque. After visiting the Sulthan Ahmet mosque (Blue Mosque) in Istanbul this mosque feels more peaceful, partly since the Sulthan Ahmet mosque is now a big tourist attraction with the great stream of people coming for its fame.

This Mosque is different from the others. Instead of ceramics and majolicas it has painted walls decorated with arabic inscriptions. There is also a large fountain for ablution in the middle. A screen translates arabic into latin characters (only turkish tough, or at least I couldn't find any English)

The Great Mosque is a must see in Bursa. The interior is decorated with large inscriptions written by famous Ottoman calligraphers. A serene place with no other tourists when we visited.

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
