THE GREEN TOMB

The Green Tomb was commissioned by Çelebi Mehmet ,the son of Yildirim Bayezid and built by the architect Haci Ivaz in 1421. The tomb is octagonal, pointed dome and specific characteristic style. The tomb consists of cross vaults which has windows in every corner and sarcophaguses on the floor. The tiles of the tomb are mostly green colour and they are one of the most beautiful samples of the Ottoman art. In the middle of the tomb, Çelebi Mehmet’s mausoleum is located which is made of marble, octagonal designed and beautiful tiles. As we read from the inscription of the tomb, those tiles of the Green Tombs were made by Mecnun Mehmet. Most of the inner part of the mosque is decorated with tiles which made by Mecnun Mehmet. The most remarkable part of the mosque is the mihrap which is 10 meters and the tile workmanship is worth to see.
