Muradiye Camii

The Muradiye Camii, built in 1435, is the least-known of the important Ottoman mosques in Edirne. It’s located to the northeast of the city center, a straight shot down Mimar Sinan Caddesi from Selimiye Camii.

Upon entering, you’ll see the mosque’s original Iznik tiles. The disproportionately large mihrab is covered in priceless tiles as well.

There are also parts of the plaster walls that have been uncovered revealing beautiful Islamic artwork. The artwork was whitewashed but the reason is unknown.

My favorite feature of the mosque? The ping pong table in a room off to the side!
