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.

The grand mosque is an enormous building with 20 domes supported on a minimum number of columns. For engineers this is something to see. The decorations on the inside are largely caligraphy, ranging from large signs praising Allah down to small plaques all be different caligraphers.

It is beautiful as far as mosques go. Hand writings on the wall and overall architecture are amazing . It is open to all. Women and men can enter just to visit. It is customary for women to wear a head scarf when visiting. Do not enter with shoes.

The great mosque is a must see in Bursa. Particularly the calligraphic writings that show a fantastic variety and beauty are worth to spend some time.

The Ulu Camii is a beautiful place and the architecture is very different to the mosques in Istanbul. We really enjoyed visiting this mosque.

I find it hard to review a place of worship. The site is always more than just a building and will mean very different things to different people.
