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.

After the Turks conquered Byzantium (now Istanbul), they learned the art of building huge soaring domes from Hagia Sofia. This early Ottoman mosque was built in 1399, before the conquest of Byzantium in 1453, so it uses a radically different design. Rather than one huge dime, it has many small ones. This means the interior is cluttered with numerous support... More

Though historic, interior is painted-- so no interesting tiles or other features. The Koran inscriptions are spectacular though-- along with the scale of the place. Check the fountain (cesme) outside.

Everything in this mosque has a history of more than 400 years. The wooden structures.. the ablution fountain inside.. the tiles are simply amazing.

The sound of the fountain on a very cold day really doesn't help warmed me. But the masjeed is beautiful nonetheless. The layout is quite different than the other masjeeds I've seen. Soothing and calming

A super atmosphere with great historical value. This mosque is in the old historical centre. It is surrounded with a lot of small shops which are located in the old and historical (but restored ) buildings.

I'm sometimes find churches and mosques a bit sterile, but this Cami had a really nice and warm welcoming atmosphere. The building is very impressive and the water fountain is beautiful. The walk from Kent meydani to the mosque adds to the trip, so many back street markets! Would definitely recommend it.

Ulucami is the last mosque built in the form of a "grand mosque" in Turkish Seljuk architecture. There are 20 domes (4*5) and 2 minarets. There is a fountain (şadırvan) under the middle dome which is unique for the mosques. You will be amazed by the caligraphy on the walls and columns, it is actually considered as the biggest calligraphy... More

This is a large and interesting mosque which is well worth visiting. It predates the Turks capturing Constantinople and is quite different to those I'd seen in Istanbul. We felt welcome and able to look around. It is well worth a visit but do see the Green Mosque afterwards as that is the highlight of Bursa. Count the domes -... More
