“Calm & peaceful on top of the city”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This may not be the grandest of mosques (Camii) in Bursa yet it has a simple magnificence of its own; the marble fountains used for washing up before prayers are just pieces of art, the open ceiling, marble floored hall in the middle is so cool & inviting, with its center piece mountain; the mosque to one side is an example of simple beauty and beautiful simplicity, there is a mausoleum on the other side opposite the mosque where visitors stand behind the golden bars and recite prayers, the whole scene is so tranquil and soothing. We have visited many other mosques in Bursa & in Istanbul, each had its own merits, this one surely stands out as the simplest and most “down to earth” of all those structures.
The buildings outside the mosque, related to it somehow, like the ancient religious school, etc. And even the merchants selling small wooden Bursa souvenirs, all add to the beauty of the place. The view of the city of Bursa down below is very picturesque. Don’t miss it if you’re in Bursa, worth the short stop and very close to the green (Yesil camii) mosque & the green mausoleum (Yesil tourbe).

“A place to see.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

It is well worth it to know more about the Turkish culture. They have the tombs of the Sultan and his family in a very well preserved building.

“Saint Emir Soultan”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Emir Soultan is not a king. He married with Yildirim Bayazid (The soultan of Ottoman). However his way is islam and he never run after kingdom or money etc.. Visit his mosque and ask the details of holly stories about him.
