From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“Hüdavendigar Mosque (Turkish; Hüdavendigar Camii or Murat Hüdavendigar Camii) is a historic mosque in Bursa, Turkey, that is part of the large complex (külliye) built by the Ottoman Sultan Murad I between 1365-1385 and is also named after the same sultan. It went under extensive renovation following the 1855 Bursa earthquake.
The mosque has a reversed T-plan and the Külliye further consists of a Madrasa) and dervish lodge (zaviye), mausoleum Türbe, fountain, a soup kitchen Imaret, a hamam and a Koran school for boys (sibyan mektebi).”
From other sources: the mosque is special in that it has the medrese integrated into the mosque building, unique in Ottoman architecture. Influence of Italian architecture can be seen in the façade.
A notice on site indicates the mausoleum (across the road from the mosque) more or less follows the original plan. It contains the body of Murat I, the sultan who was killed after winning the battle in Serbia at Kosovo. An inscription above the entrance records a restoration in 1741 and another following the earthquake in 1855. It also mentions some metalwork and a kuran sent by Sultan Berkuk are now in the Türk ve Islam Eserleri Müzesi of Bursa.
I visited the mosque once when it was being restored and was allowed to climb on its roof. So in this gallery you see both the restoration and the result (which is fine).
