The Emir Sultan Mosque, rebuilt in 1805 and recently restored, is a captivating blend of Ottoman rococo design. Its exterior boasts intricate woodwork, graceful curves, and adorned arches. The interior, in contrast, features a more modest design. What truly sets this mosque apart is its idyllic location, nestled beside a vast hillside cemetery enveloped by towering trees. The sweeping views from this vantage point encompass the city and the valley, making it a serene and picturesque site to visit.

Upon entering the mosque, visitors are often surprised by the relative simplicity of the interior compared to its lavish exterior. However, the mosque’s charm lies not only in its architectural opulence but also in its serene and picturesque surroundings. It is nestled next to a sprawling hillside cemetery, shaded by towering trees and overlooking the city and the valley. This natural backdrop adds to the mosque’s allure, providing a tranquil setting for prayer and contemplation.

Reaching the Emir Sultan Mosque is convenient, as it is accessible via dolmuş (shared taxis) or buses marked with ‘Emir Sultan.’ For those who prefer to explore on foot, a pleasant walk between this mosque, the Yeşil Camii, and the Yeşil Türbe offers an opportunity to enjoy the local sights and sounds of Bursa. Along this route, you’ll encounter a cemetery that is home to the final resting place of Kebapcı İskender, a legendary figure in Turkish culinary history.

The Emir Sultan Mosque is not just a place of worship but a testament to the architectural and cultural legacy of Bursa, making it a must-see attraction for visitors seeking to delve into the history and artistry of the Ottoman Empire.
