Must visit this attraction when the roses are blossoming. Nice and quiet spot in Buda side. you need to walk a little to get there, but not difficult to find it.

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

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

A bit of a hike, as we walked there from Matthias church, and certainly off the beaten track. Fortunately we had good instructions in our Lonely planet guidebook as I didn't see any direction signs for the tomb. Interesting piece of Turkish history and a lovely, peaceful spot.

In a time where some Hungarians are bent on erasing their multicultural identity, it is almost a relief that some monument still remain from the Ottoman period in Hungary. The Gül Baba mausoleum (Mecset utca) is the northern most pilgrimage site for Muslims and in this way is a must see as the really the most protected Turkish monument in... More
