Abstract

Manisa Ulu Mosque, constructed during the Principality of Saruhanogullari and stands out as one of the stunning structures of Asia Minor-Turkish architecture, constitutes a part of a large Islamic-Ottoman social complex consisting of a madrasah, a tomb, a bath, a Mevlevi lodge and fountains. The findings obtained within the scope of the restoration works initiated in 2019 in the Ulu Mosque and Madrasah have enabled us to acquire interesting data, particularly with respect to the initial construction phases of the building.
