This relaxing complex contains a shady park, a cemetery with historic tombs, and the 1426 Sultan Murat II (Muradiye) Camii. Imitating the painted decorations of Yeşil Camii, another of Bursa's great Ottoman mosques, the Muradiye features an intricate mihrab (niche in a minaret indicating the direction of Mecca).
The cemetery's 12 tombs (15th to 16th century) include that of Sultan Murat II (r 1421–51). Although his son Mehmet II would capture Constantinople, Murat laid the groundwork by annexing territories from enemy states during his reign.
Like other Islamic dynasties, the Ottomans did not practice primogeniture – any royal son could claim power upon his father's death, which, unsurprisingly, resulted in numerous bloodbaths. The tombs preserve this macabre legacy: all the şehzades (imperial sons) interred here were killed by close relatives. While many tombs are ornate and trimmed with beautiful İznik tiles, others are simple and stark, like that of the ascetic and part-time dervish Murat II.
The 15th-century Muradiye Medresesi was a tuberculosis clinic in the 1950s and still houses a medical centre. The Sultan Murat II Hamamı, which catered to the medrese (seminary) students, is now a government building.
