Yeşil Türbe (Green Tomb)

Yeşil Türbe (Green Tomb) Review

The "Green Tomb," built in 1421, is the resting place of Mehmet I Çelebi. It's actually covered in blue tiles, added after an earthquake damaged the originals in the 1800s, but inside are incredible original İznik tiles, including those sheathing Mehmet's immense sarcophagus—and these are indeed green. The surrounding tombs belong to Mehmet's children.
