It's so big it's so great but when you enter from the doors it does not feel that massive at all. So peaceful so calm. The building is fabulous.

It's nice to visit because of the historical sigificance but it's not one of the most beautiful mosques I've visited.

When I entered this mosque, I felt really peaceful. The area was so big and very calming. I still can listen people reciting Quran slowly in the mosque.Also, I can see one beautiful fountain in the middle of the mosque for the prayer taking wuduk. The wall was painted beautifully by the greatest calligraphers during the Ottoman Empire . Everything... More

I was told this was a special mosque, especially because there is a fountain in the middle of the mosque. The interior looks nice and worth a visit. I believe it is the first mosque I have been in in my life. Good thing: it is free!

Even if you're tired of seeing mosques you should go inside this one. It's very ottoman and with impressive calligraphy designs on the walls.

Bursa is an amazing city, it was a pity it was our last stop and we could not really enjoy it. The city respects its history and is one of the most important ottoman's place to understand the empire and its importance. Ulu Mosque is unique, the fountain right in the middle makes it a surprise. I really like mosques... More

This is the must-see attraction in Bursa. Having already visited mosques in Istanbul, I was expecting this to be similar, but I was cetainly wrong. There was a fountain for ablutions in the middle of the mosque, and the light shone on it from the domed roof above. You had to look closely to see that above the fountain there... More
