View one of the most extensive collections of Islamic calligraphy in the world at Ulu Cami, the largest mosque in the area and a landmark of early Ottoman architecture. Built in the Seljuk style by renowned architect Ali Neccar between 1396 and 1399, the large rectangular building has two minarets and 20 domes in four rows of five, supported by 12 columns. Visit the fountain inside the mosque, where worshippers perform a ritual cleansing of the hands before prayer. The dome over the fountain features a skylight that illuminates the fountain and its surroundings. Admire the 192 monumental inscriptions on the walls, columns, and plates, written by famous Ottoman calligraphers. Be sure to remain considerate to those praying, given that services regularly occur, even though the mosque is open to the public. Note also that women should cover their heads with a scarf when entering any mosque.

İbadet için Harika bir yer hem tarihi olarak hem de temizlik olarak ne mutlu ki bize aynı şehirdeyiz ❤️❤️❤️ more »A great place for worship, both historically and as a cleanup, happily, we are in the same city ❤️❤️❤️
La grande cupola illumina la bellissima fontana, rendendo magica la parte centrale. Le bellissime maioliche decorano con gusto l' intera moschea, unica nel suo genere, molto diversa dalla moschea blu ... more »The large dome illuminates the beautiful fountain, making the central part magical. The beautiful majolicas tastefully decorate the entire mosque, unique in its kind, very different from the blue mosque in Istanbul.
