  • Yeşil Türbe(Green Tomb) The mausoleum of 5th Ottoman sultan Mehmed I Çelebi (and several of his children) stands in a cypress-trimmed park opposite Yeşil Camii (Green Mosque). During his short rule (1413–21), he reunited a fractured empire following the Mongols' 1402 invasion. Despite its name, the türbe (tomb) is not green; it has blue Kütahya tiles outside that postdate the 1855 earthquake. The structure has a sublime, simple beauty, the original interior tiles exemplifying 15th-century decor. There is also an impressive tiled mihrab.
  • Tomb of the fifth Sultan of the Ottoman Empire This is the tomb of the fifth Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Mehmed I. He re-established the Ottoman Empire after their defeat by the forces of Tamerlane at the Battle of Ankara. He conquered the city of Edirne and moved the capital from Bursa to Edirne, but was buried in Bursa in the end.
