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 was quite empty when I visited. This is the second mosque I have been to, after the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. It certainly does not have the 'wow' factor as in the Blue Mosque. I came here mainly because it is a UNESCO site.

At its peak, this was the fifth most holy sites in Islam. This 20 domed mosque has its walls covered with calligraphy and a fountain in the center. Here you will find many people studying and praying throughout the day. In addition, on one of the walls hangs an old Kaaba covering. This is the best mosque in Bursa so... More

A very interesting mosque, with huge calligraphy on its interior wall. There's a fountain, for the ablution right in the middle of the mosque. Take a close look at the mimbar/pulpit, there's a carving on the solar system.
