Cumalıkızık, one of the first Ottoman settlements in Bursa, comprises 270 dwellings, 180 of which are still in use, and some are undergoing conservation and restoration work. In 1969, the remnants of a Byzantine church were discovered at the Ihlamurcu site, which is located at the base of the Uludag Mountain to the southeast of the Cumalıkızık village. The Bursa Archaeological Museum houses some of the architectural remnants discovered on the surface of the church's ruins. The Ottoman Principality of Bursa, created near Bursa, quickly came to dominate the region, conquering Bursa in 1326 and İznik in 1331.
Cumalıkızık, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of Bursa's oldest towns, dating from the Ottoman Empire to the present day and boasting a 700-year history. Cumalıkızık Village Museum tours through the pages of history to educate them about the region's past. The Cumalıkızık Village Museum, reopened to the public on June 22, 2015, by the Bursa Metropolitan Municipality with a new look, has two floors.
