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.

A stunning mosque which has a beautiful interior and exterior. Easy to find and look around. It has a relaxing and peaceful feel when wandering about. The history of the mosque is very interesting especially when you discover its historic significance to Islam. A real delight to see.

This is something great. This place has magical spiritual and special power. I have heard a legend about Ulu Camii mosque states that before an earthquake happened in Bursa in 1999 the souls of all previous Rulers (padishah) of the Ottoman period raised and prayed, and the security of the Mosque were the evidents of that... Entering the Mosque you... More

It is one of my favourite mosques now. It is an absolute must see at the heart of the city. It is also taken into the Unesco World Heritage Sites in Turkey. It was build by the fourth Ottoman sultan Beyazıt I, the Thunderbolt in 1399. It has 20 domes! It is the largest mosque in Turkey.

There are several amazing things about this mosque that makes it unique: - The mystical minbar (pulpit) which is composed of 6666 pieces put in a lego-like way together without a nail, pin, glue nor adhesive - Beautiful calligraphy all over the mosque - Fountain for ablution inside the mosque (which is quite unusual) getting its light from above opening...

Its one of the amazing mosque of the Turkey. Its famous for its domes, wall inscriptions, fountain, minbar (made without using nails).. You will spend most of your time for reading the monumental wall inscriptions which were written by the famous calligraphers of that period. As the mosque is just next to the Koza Hani, you might make a short... More

My wife and I visited this mosque and we were made to feel very welcome. Appropriate dress was provided to my wife and we were able to explore the beauty of the building in comfort. This mosque is said to be the fifth most important in the Islamic world having been built in the 1390s. One of the many items... More
