During a December 2006 visit to Edirne I took many pictures, despite the heavy fog on most days. I decided to give the major mosques in this beautiful city a gallery of their own. I added the pictures from the general Edirne gallery. I kept these pictures in their original place too, since people may have links to it.

The Beyazit II mosque has been built between 1484 and 1488 bij Sultan Beyazit II, with the money left after his Moldau War. It is situated at the river Tunça. The architect Hayreddin based the ground plan on that of the Yeşil Mosque in Bursa. The building has a square prayer room with a dome on top and adjacent rooms for Q’uaran study, as well a courtyard, and is representative for the early Ottoman mosque architecture. The mosque is at the centre of a magnificent külliye. To the right is a medical centre a psychiatric centre and a medical training centre (now an interesting museum of medicine), I have put those pictures in a separate gallery. To the left are a bakery, a kitchen for feeding the poor and some buildings for trade. After a December 2009 visit I am able to show some more of both the mosque (which is under restoration, but can show its proud interior to full effect now) and the museum. Pictures will be rearranged after some other work I have to do.
