Çekirge Thermal Baths, Bursa

Murad I Mosque, Cekirge, Bursa, Turkey
Murad I Mosque, Çekirge.

Known for its hot mineral waters—and lots of hotels built to house those who have come to enjoy them—Çekirge also boasts the interesting old Mosque of Murat IHüdavendigâr (1366) and the tomb of its founder.

If you have an intense interest in early Ottoman mosque architecture, or if you intend to spend some time in one of Çekirge’s famous mineral baths, you’ll want to visit here.

Çekirge (CHEH-keer-geh) is well to the west of the center of Bursa and its other sightseeing districts, and requires a bus or taxi ride.
