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.

Ulu Camii (Ulu Mosque) is must if your are visiting Bursa and its Old Town. Take you time inside and observe the details, such as the 20 domes in the ceiling and ablution fountain in the center. The simple beauty of the design.

This masjid is different from so many others around Turkey. While the trademark Ottoman architecture remains the same, the Arabic calligraphy for Quranic verses written inside the masjid are impressive and clearly from a different era of Ottoman rule

Yes indeed, a mosque is open every day from early in the morning till late in the evening. On fridays it is normally busy because a lot of muslims go there on that day to pray.
