The Ottoman Sultan Bayezid built the symbolic Mosque of Bursa in 1399. According to the story, after Sultan Bayezid defeated the Serbian army at Niğbolu, he decided to build 20 mosques in Bursa.
When Bayezid told his idea to his son-in-law, he advised building a mosque with 20 domes rather than 20 mosques. The Grand Mosque has unique, distinctive Ottoman architecture; 55,00-69,00 m2, rectangular plan, and the interior are 3.165,5 m2. The Grand Mosque is the largest central mosque among the others.
The Bursa Grand Mosque houses one of the unique Ottoman Calligraphies, which Sefik Bey wrote. In the inner walls, there are 192 calligraphies in total.
