As being the dynastic residence and seat of government, Bursa Palace, that had been the first full-fledged Ottoman Palace since the beginnig of the 14th century, had lost its importance after the conquest of Edirne and Istanbul. The palace, had been abandoned by the dynasty, was ruined in time and dissappeared ruins. Today, structuring on the area that Bursa Palace was located does not let the archeologic surveys.
