These two tombs, reconstructed during 1860's after earthquake demolition, rest atop a beautiful summit over looking Bursa flow down two mountains to the plain below. The tombs are overly-done as expected of the first two Sultans. Surrounded by other family members in undecorated, covered containers, you can feel the power of a Sultan by standing just a few feet from... More

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
