Ulu Camii (The Great Mosque)

Ulu Camii is the major mosque of Bursa and a landmark of early Ottoman architecture. It was built by Ali Neccar in 1396-1399, at Sultan Bayezid I´s command. The mosque is large and rectangular, with twenty domes arranged in four rows of five supported by twelve columns. Supposedly twenty domes are built instead of twenty separate mosques that Sultan Bayezid I promised for winning the Battle of Nicopolis. It has two minarets. Inside the mosque there are 192 monumental wall inscriptions written by famous calligraphers. There is also a fountain (þadýrvan) inside the mosque where worshipers can perform ritual ablutions before prayer; the dome over the þadýrvan is capped by a skylight, creating a soft, serene light below. The story of the þadýrvan inside the mosque, which is unheard of, that the land belong to an old lady who objected to her store taken by padiþah. Because consent is not given for the piece of land, prayer cannot be conducted on it thus a þadýrvan is built. Architecturally þadýrvan helps to have light inside the mosque that is big.

The horizontally spacious and dimly lit interior is designed to feel peaceful and contemplative. The subdivisions of space formed by multiple domes and pillars create a sense of privacy and even intimacy. This atmosphere contrasts with later Ottoman mosques (see for example the work of Süleyman I´s chief architect Sinan). These later mosques have increasingly elevated central domes, which create a vertical emphasis that is intended to be more overwhelming, in order to convey the power and majesty of the Ottoman Empire. It is a beautiful piece of architecture.

Thank you for posting this information about Bursa, a city I know little about.  I like the photos of the mountains Uludag, and I know there is skiing there in Winter!  Looks like somewhere I would like to visit.

I wasn´t very lucky when I visited Bursa. What is known to be a green city was during maintenance works and even the big park was covered with gravel and civil workers. What I loved about Bursa was kestane tatlýsý - you won´t get as tasty ones anywhere else in Turkey I think, also, there´s a lovely Ottoman Village nearby (sorry I don´t remember the name) and a famous huge platanus.
