The tomb of Çelebi Mehmet (Ottoman sultan) is called Yeşil Türbe (Green Tomb) because of the colors of the tiles... Most of the tiles were replaced and the quality of the restoration job was poor so they couldn't quite catch the turquoise color of the original tiles so it looks blueish now. You can see some tiles that look older,... More

The mausoleum whilst elegant and impressive is yet simple and down to earth. Walking into a tomb with all the caskets is eerie. Although this is supposed to be a mausoleum after the in family rivalry ended, two casks of brothers bears the same date of death. Makes one think.

I have visited Silk Souk there and this tomb was located next to the Souk inside the mosque square. It is one of the historical sights from Ottomans old days

Can learn some history of Ottoman era's sultan political & family story. Beautiful & natrual green tiles walls. There is a nice Silk House nearby for souvenir shopping. A very interesting store. Next to the Silk House, there is a local tea shop along the aisle which is worth to stop for a sip at only 1 Lira per cup.

Sultan Mehmet Celebi's tomb. Next to the tomb, there is the mosque. Behind them there is the Hunkar Cafe. On the other side there is the museum. This is an area you will spend at least a half day.

It's a very primitive, but nice area where you can spend about 45 minutes to see its attractions which is related mainly to the Islamic culture.
