Welcome to the Murat I Hudavendigar Mosque, a historic masterpiece that stands as a testament to the rich cultural and architectural heritage of Bursa Turkiye. Built under the visionary guidance of Sultan Murad I between 1363 and 1366, this splendid mosque has played a pivotal role in shaping the city’s growth, enabling its expansion westwards.

At the heart of the Murat I Hudavendigar Mosque Complex lies a harmonious blend of architectural marvels, including a mosque, madrasah, public kitchen, Turkish bath, and a royal tomb. Crafted by Byzantine artisans, the mosque carries distinct Byzantine elements, adding a unique character to its design. One of its distinguishing features is the integration of a madrasah, ingeniously placed on the upper floor, making it the only example of an Ottoman mosque with two porticos.

Sultan Abdülaziz, in 1863, meticulously reconstructed the royal tomb on its original foundations, employing historic techniques and details. Within the tomb, eight coffins, including that of Sultan Murad Hüdavendigar (Murad I), pay homage to the historical significance of the site. The public kitchen, restored by Sultan Abdülhamit in 1906 after sustaining damage in the 1855 earthquake, now serves as a vibrant social-cultural center.

Preserving its original function, the Turkish bath within the complex stands as a living testament to the architectural ingenuity of the time. The Gir-Cık Bath, located to the east of the mosque, may be smaller compared to other baths in similar complexes, indicating a strategic allocation of functions within the complex while utilizing the nearby Eski Kaplica for larger bathing facilities.

The Murat I Hudavendigar Mosque Complex has not only lent its name to the surrounding neighborhood but also occupies a site with abundant healing waters, enhancing its significance for the city. Recognized for its cultural and historical value, the complex proudly sits within the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2014.

Explore the captivating history and architectural splendor of the Murat I Hudavendigar Mosque, where the past seamlessly converges with the present, inviting visitors to witness the enduring legacy of Ottoman craftsmanship and cultural richness.
