There are two buildings where in there are many tombs including Orhan the founder of ottoman dynasty and his father Osmania. This structures at that time were supposed to be chapels. This tombs are in the same complex where the famousTophane is located. This place gives excellent view of Bursa city

Check before going: after a long walk I arrived there to find out it wasn't possible to get in because there were works in progess to restore it. Sigh!

We combines this tomb with 4-5 other landmarks and by the time we got there were rather tired. This was a nice, cool place to rest before continuing.

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.
