edirne muradiye mihrab reedit 2.jpg

The Muradiye Mosque was founded in 1435 by Murat II. It was, together with the Tekke (monastery) an important centre of Dervishes following Mevlana. I took pictures in different times of the year, on different media, and in December 2009 added pictures with some of the gypsy girls who tried to show me around (but found the mosque closed).

This is the mihrab, the prayer niche for the imam, which is of the highest quality tiles, comparable to that in the Green Mausoleum in Bursa.
