  Yesil Türbe

Favorite thing: Yesil Türbe means Green Tomb. The exterior of the tomb is not green but covered with turquoise tiles. Above the windows is tiled calligraphy (I have no idea what is written). Inside the walls are decorated with more turquoise tiles and the mihrab is impressive and finely decorated. This is the tomb of Mehmet I and his family.

There is no entrance fee and you don’t have to take your shoes off (as you should do in tombs in other cities).

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
