Bursa Emir Sultan Camii May 2014 7097.jpg

Inside the Sultan Emir Türbesi (mausoleum). The architecture – an octagonal room under a dome – is of Classical Ottoman inspiration, but the decoration (murals, marbles, windows) displays a pure late-Ottoman ‘Ampir’ style (= influenced by the ‘Nouvel Empire’, the French Neo-Classical style under Napoleon III).
