Turkey, Bursa, Sept. 2013
Yeşil Mosque, also known as the Green Mosque, is a part of the larger complex located on the east side of Bursa, the former capital of the Ottoman Turks before they captured Constantinople in 1453. It can be shown as the perfect blend between architecture and embellishment, the proof that such works of art were produced in a country where the battles between siblings had come to an end and peace had returned. The mosque was built between 1419–1421 by architect Hacı İvaz Pasha: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yesil_Mosque The picture shows one of the rooms of Sultan Yeşil.
