Old or Ulu Mosque and Bedesten in Edirne

Old or Ulu Mosque and Bedesten in Edirne
Eski (old) or Ulu Mosque covered with nine domes is the oldest monumental Ottoman structure in Edirne dating back to the 15th century. It is famous for its huge calligraphic works of large Arabic inscriptions on either side of the front door, one in the name of Allah and the other of Mohammed.  
The Bedesten, built by Mehmet I, was the first covered market and sold valuable goods and jewellery with part of its revenue going to the upkeep of the mosque. It has 14 vaulted chambers that have undergone restoration works for the past 10 years but the modern shops and shoddy paintwork have left it looking rather drab and mediocre.
