Bursa Ulu or Great Mosque

Bursa Ulu or Great Mosque

view map

After some hesitation I decided in 2003 to visit the city - that I already liked a lot - in winter. It was so nice that I returned in March 2004. Bursa looks good in the snow. This is the Ulu or Great Mosque on a winter morning.

It was the first large congregational mosque of the Ottomans (1396) and measures 56 x 68 m over all. The twenty domes rest on twelve piers. It has three entries: a ‘Great Door’ in the North, and two secondary entries in the East and the West. The two minarets stand in the northeast and northwest corners.
