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

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.
