Photographer's Note

'took in today in the "Muradiye Complex" / Bursa..
This complex located within a park in the city center was constructed by Sultan Murat II between 1424 and 1426 and was composed of a mosque, theology school, hamam and 12 tombs.
In the Cem Sultan’s tomb the Sultans Mustafa and Cem, sons of Fatih Mehmet are buried. Mustafa died in 1474, returning from a conquest of fortresses around Konya, after a stay at another place his remains were transferred to this tomb in 1479. Later Cem (1499) and Alem Shah were buried here too. Tiles and carvings, and lots of wall painting make it impressive.
