Yenişehir near Bursa

Click here for my page with very many Turkish cities

This town served as an Ottoman capital, after Söğüt, Eskişehir and Karacahisar and before Bursa, (which still had to be conquered in the time we speak of, early 14th century).

After a visit to Inegöl on a cold December morning I moved on to nearby Yenişehir (there is another town of that name). I intended to visit the külliye (a complex of a mosque and surrounding buildings like a soup kitchen and a medrese, and maybe a hospital). The mosque, the Sinan Paşa Camii, looked alright but was closed. A former han was reduced to its foundations. Another part (that seemed to have been the lodgings for a Janissary regiment) was in use, as a special school for pupils from all over the country. They invited me in, we had a chat, and by the time I left them the sun was about to set, and I decided to hurry back to Bursa. So very few pictures of this small town. I may return because it is within easy reach from my favourite Bursa, and have the feeling there may be more to see.
