Simple, humbling tombs for the man who started an empire that lasted for centuries and expanded across vast reaches. Very humbling indeed. Quite a hike to climb if on foot, and we were, yet it was worse the effort, especially to look down on the city below.

These are on top of a hill and there is a tea shop nearby. It overlooks the whole city, has a nice view. Also there are restaurants on the way. You can take a break here.

This (Osman Gazi's) was the grandest of all tombs of sultans I have yet to come across in Turkey so far. Visiting Orhan Gazi's tomb was also a very grand and humbling experience. Osman Gazi was a very grand man as Allah seemed him fit and destined him to lead an empire that would control the world for over 600... More

So I guess I must have not heard where we were going before I entered the building because I didn't realize until after we left who was actually in the tombs. Its pretty profound to know the people who founded the Ottoman Empire are still taken care of.

Previous review explains really well why this place is so important. This is resting place for few very important figures of the Ottoman Empire, expecially Osman Gazi (you can see many streets named after him in all Turkey). You would probably be surprised, why here in Bursa, not in Istanbul, but this town was always in the centre of Turkish... More

Tombs of Osman Gazi and his son Orhan Gazi are powerful, but not in terms of architecture or sytle but rather in meaning: these 2 warriors are the founders of a state which turned in almost 200 years into an empire that dominated the world and the place they have chosen for their own tombs is in itself an indicator...
