From the Wikipedia, edited by me: The Emir Sultan Mosque (Turkish: Emir Sultan Camii) is a mosque in Bursa, Turkey. First built in the 14th century, it was rebuilt in 1804 upon the orders of the Ottoman Sultan Selim III, and re-built again in 1868, along slightly varying plans each time.
Following a 1855 earthquake, the mosque and the mausoleum (Turkish: türbe) of Emir Sultan were rebuilt in 1868 by Sultan Abdülaziz. The mosque and mausoleum stand on opposite sides of a large courtyard with large basin at the entrance. The mosque and mausoleum are accessed through the courtyard. A wooden arcade with pointed arches wraps around the courtyard and rises to form portals with tall domes at bays leading into the buildings. The mosque is a tall single-unit prayer hall of masonry construction. It has 2 minarets at its corners on the north. The mausoleum, opposite the mosque entrance, is composed of a domed room in the center and smaller rooms to its sides. It houses the tombs of Emir Sultan and his family. Other rooms on the north corner of the courtyard are for use by imams. An old cemetery covers the downside of the hill from the complex. Hundi Hatun, the wife of Emir Sultan and daughter of Bayezid I, built the hamam to the south of the mosque. There are numerous historic fountains scattered around the complex (külliye); the earliest dating from 1743.
