This appears to be well preserved mausoleum of the Sultan's tombs - very ornate and had tombs of a few of the rulers in the past. Apart from that is a very small monument

The green tomb is part of a complex consisting of the mausoleum of the fifth Ottoman Sultan Mehmed I Yeşil Türbe and the yeşil Camii mosque. The son of the Emperor-loser Bayezid Mehmed I after the destruction of Bursa moved the capital to the European part of the Empire in the conquered Andrianople, which the Ottomans renamed Edirne, so he didn`t build this mausoleum for himself. However, Mehmet died 40 days after the construction was completed and was buried here anyway, Along with his wives, sons and daughters. The tomb and mosque were designed by the same architect - Haji Ivaz Pasha, which is visible to the naked eye. The mausoleum stands higher than the rest of the complex. The Seljuks, the predecessors of the Ottomans, built conical mausoleums, while the Ottomans preferred usually octagonal ones. The green tomb is built in a hexagonal plan and is topped by a hemispherical dome. The exterior of the mausoleum is covered with greenish-blue tiles, which gave it its name. Most of the tiles are already modern after the 1855 earthquake. Although the tomb is more significant for the Turks, the mosque is more beautiful. IMHO. Iznik tiles with floral patterns create a unique impression. Real masterpiece.
