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.

Sparingly decorated inside, this cavernous place is fairly pleasant to walk around, though I found the voice of the preacher on duty detracted from the feeling of peace and holiness. I enjoyed seeing the fine wood carving in the pulpit. Some of the calligraphy is interestingly worked.

It is the biggest mosque of anatolia. Just close to the koza khan. It is a must if you come to bursa. There is a picture of the holy kabe and you can see the door is watching you to every direction you go.

Amazing, beautiful, artistic, marvelous, wonderful i am infact out of objectives to describe this beautiful mosque. A must to do once you are in Bursa. I felt it as marvelous as blue mosque or Sulemaniya mosque in Istanbul.

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
