Gul Baba Tomb, Budapest: 19 reviews and 25 photos
The Ottomans ruled over Budapest for a century and a half, but hardly anything remains as a reminder of their time in the city. One such reminder is the tomb of Gul Baba, a Dervish poet and constant companion of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Located on a quiet spot on the Hill of Roses overlooking Budapest, the tomb is now a shrine and place of pilgrimage for Muslims. In fact it's the northernmost Islamic place of pilgrimage in the world.
The tomb is peaceful, and in a very pleasant part of the city, in a grassy suburb away from the noise of the city, but still quite central. The tomb is now owned by the Turkish government, and is looked after by a small group of old men who sit drinking tea in the shade.
Address: 1023 Budapest, Mecset u. 14 (Turbe ter 1.entrance)
Directions: Take Bus #91 or 191 from Nyugati station to Apostol utca. Walk up this street and then turn right down Verhalom Utca. Tale the next right (not Gul Baba utca). The tomb is a short walk away.
