This tomb, which is also the symbol of Bursa, is one of the most beautiful and unique samples of Ottoman tomb architecture. A lead dome perched on a high hoop covers the octagonal structure, which can be climbed via a marble stairway.

A must visit when in Turkey, especially Bursa. Pay respect to early Caliphs of the Ottoman Empire and his family. Very rich historical place. The building architecture is special. The ceramic design is beautiful indeed.

Located next to the Grand Mosque is the Green Tomb. It was nicely built, but didn't take any photos due to respect. It is a nice quiet place where you can see some old people sitting on the bench outside.

The Green Tomb is a rather small tomb, but it's big on symbolism and significance. The art work and tile work are magnificent. It's an absolutely beautiful building to admire. Also if you have time walk around the neighbourhood. It's quite nice.

This is a small shrine but the architecture and decoration are beautiful. It is reminiscent of Central Asia. It is also located in a beautiful area of town in amongst trees and park. Surrounded by traditional houses that have been lovingly maintained.

The tomb is surely an iconic building to visit, but I was actually more impressed by the beautiful neighborhood surrounding the complex. The landscape design and the plantations are amazing.
