From Hurriyet Meydani, walk east along Talat Pasa Caddesi to the eski Cami ( Old Mosque; 1414). Behind it is the Rustem Pasa Hani, a han ( caravanserai) built 100 years later and now the Hotel Rustem Pasa Kervansaray.
The Eski Cami exemplifies one of the two classic mosque styles used by the Ottomans in their earlier capital, Bursa. Like Bursa’s great Ulu Cami, the Eski Cami has rows of arches and pillars supporting a series of small domes. Inside, there is a marvelous mihrab and huge telegraphic inscriptions on the walls. The columns at the front of the mosque where ‘borrowed’ from a Roman building.
