Bursa, Turkey

Bursa, the fourth largest city in Turkey, was an early capital of the Ottoman Empire.  It is, therefore, no surprise that its Great Mosque, or Ulu Cami, is one of the country's most magnificent and capacious.  Here, a naturally-illuminated and beautifully-carpeted alcove offers some intimate space for reading the Koran.  [2007]
