Named after Pazarkoy long ago, the district is situated 45 km away to Bursa city center and has a population of 80 thousand. Orhangazi, where the first settlement dates back to BC 74, had become the part of Ottoman territories by being conquered by Orhan Gazi in 1332 after the dominations of Roman, Byzantine and Seljuks.

Allowing immigrants from Caucasia and Balkans for more than a century, Orhangazi stands out with its cosmopolite structure.
