It's exotic athmosphere is undeniable! Beautiful painted tiles on the wall, nice panorama to the Danube. It' s a little bit hidden, but search for the golden moon (on the top of the round tomb). It's need to be restored, they're going to do it this year. You have to walk some staires from Mecset utca. You can walk from... More

If you decide to go off the beaten path or you have quite some time in Budapest and would like to visit a site that most don't visit the tomb of Gül Baba. I have lived over 2 years in Budapest before going there last time just to find the only (cobbled stoned) street that was too steep to climb... More

I always heard the story of Gul Baba from friends who visited Budapest, finally got to see his tomb. Gul Baba might be more interesting to Turks, Turkophiles, and who have some connection to Sufism or Ottoman history. This place is located very close to the Margit Bridge, however there is some steep hill to get there. We started the... More

If you want experience a true mystical place, you should visit this tomb. Near the Margareta bridge is a great turkish restaurant with extremely friend staff.

An interesting tomb from Turkish times in Budapest. It is one of the most important building from Turkish Times.

If you walk up the rose hill - you can find the tomp in the Turban Street. The area around the tomb (Rose garden) is in a bad shape - but the entry to the tomb is free. It is a must for muslim people - because it is the only pilgrimage in Western Europe.

Way, way, way off the tourist trail Gül Baba türbe (tomb) is a fascinating place to visit which gives some insight into the history of Budapest when it was occupied by the Turkish. It's a short but steep walk up Gül Baba Utca (street), itself a charming, attractive and atmospheric place to visit in a run down sort of way;... More

I visited the tomb in late October. I arrived by car with a local so I cannot vouch for how easy or difficult it is to find it. The grounds are a little bit in disrepair in places, although there are some beautiful ceramics on view, with Islamic inscriptions. The building housing the tomb was in very good condition and...

You need to climb up and walk on cobblestones so please be mindful about the type of shoes you wearing. When you finally reach your destination you are out of your breath. Having said that the whole place has a magnificent view to the city. At the entrance there is a plaque explaining in detail who Gul Baba was and... More
