Ulu Cami, Bursa
(4.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
View one of the most extensive collections of Islamic calligraphy in the world at Ulu Cami, the largest mosque in the area and a landmark of early Ottoman architecture. Built in the Seljuk style by renowned architect Ali Neccar between 1396 and 1399, the large rectangular building has two minarets and 20 domes in four rows of five, supported by 12 columns. Visit the fountain inside the mosque, where worshippers perform a ritual cleansing of the hands before prayer. The dome over the fountain features a skylight that illuminates the fountain and its surroundings. Admire the 192 monumental inscriptions on the walls, columns, and plates, written by famous Ottoman calligraphers. Be sure to remain considerate to those praying, given that services regularly occur, even though the mosque is open to the public. Note also that women should cover their heads with a scarf when entering any mosque. Put Ulu Cami and other Bursa attractions into our Bursa vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Must visit! Beautiful fountain inside the mosque. You can do ablution inside the mosque
  • Beautiful mosque! A must visit. The mosque has a huge fountain in the middle which really relaxes the environment. The art hung up all around the mosque is beautiful as well and it is a really nice place to sit down and reflect. To reflect on the Asian/Ottoman empire's greatness, art, and architecture.
