Abstract

With its thousands of years of history and traces from the past, Bursa is an open-air living history museum. Unfortunately Bursa is located in the earthquake zone and many catastrophic earthquakes occurred in the past. From inscriptions, it is learned that great majority of historical buildings like mosques, madrasahs, inns were damaged by the latest earthquake occurred in 1855. Because of their slender form, minarets were influenced much more than the other structures.
