If you look at the map you see that the address refers to Iznik. See the link below. However, in the reviews many or almost all reviewers are clearly referring to the wonderful Bursa mosque of the same name. The photos are also all or almost all of the Bursa building. I wanted to write a review of the glorious... More

Interesting and beautiful mosque. Inside and out. Inside there is a fountain. Peaceful and quiet place. Inside there is a part of the mosque that was used by sultans only. Worth seeing.

This mosque is beautiful and its surroundings are so peaceful. However, we made the mistake of seeing this first before the rest of Bursa and it all seemed dull compared to the beauty and atmosphere of this mosque. We recommend a narguille and Turkish tea at yesil bahce after its visit

There's nothing special in this mosque when you are outside. But when you come inside, it's "wow effect". Fantastic decoration, amazing colors, peaceful and quiet athmosphere. One of the most beautiful mosques I've ever seen.

The mosque is situated in a rather lovely area of Bursa. Easily accessible by bus or taxi. Delicious restaurants in vicinity. Close to silk shops as well.

It is the most beautiful mosque in Bursa and one of the oldest I believe in that area It is not big as other mosques in Istanbul but you will enjoy the mosaic in the mosque

The mosque might look average from the outside, but the inside design, decorations and distribution of spaces makes it very beautiful and unique, the basin in the middle is beautiful and adds to the serenity of the mosque.
