Recently Visited in October 2020 . The Place is amazing such as , it’s little town well worth a visit if your history fan and most importantly Ertugrul Gazi fan. We drove for 6 hours from Antalya to there so if you are planning, make sure you know where you going as there is not much to do after visiting his tomb and museum and OsmanlLi restaurant is amazing for food.

I loved visiting here, we booked a tour from Istanbul and this was first stop. The tomb is inside the building abd all the Alps buried behind with a small market too.

Opposite is a hotel and a kari tent with chance to dress up and house ride. Dressing up is 20tl and a photo is extra Turkish lira. Deffo worth it!

We visited the Tomb to pay respects to the early beginning of the formation of the Ottoman Empire. Two alps stand guard to protect the Tomb at all times. His wife Halime Hatun's grave stones are nearby outside. Many people came by to pray by his Tomb. Across the way there is a small bazaar with various souveniers.

For Ertrugul fans - a must see site! Halime Hatun's grave is also on the same site, and there are many of Ertugrul's family/companions also buried on the same site.

There are many tour packages that take you on day trips to Ertrugul's grave and Bursa as well for about £250-£300. My advice - is that if you are a reasonable driver who can safely follow sat nav instructions - and fancy driving yourself - it's very easy to do!

We stayed in Sultanahmet, but I wanted to be able to rent a car in the very early hours of the morning to avoid any traffic congestion on the roads. I booked a car from Sabiha Gokcen airport as was the nearest 24 hours car rental offering rental through the established car rental names such as Hertz. Managed to get a Peugeot 3008 MPV for about £35. We left Sabiha Gocken at about 5am and arrived at the Ertrugul Gazi site for 8.15am. Around 3 hours, absolutely no congestion, and in time for breakfast!

The drive was awesome. The highways are of an excellent quality and well lit. As you approach Bilecik, you enter hilly territory as you begin to enter smaller towns and villages. Very picturesque - make sure you have a good GPS/Sat Nav. Once you follow the signs to Bilecik, signs for Ertugrul Gazi come up regularly.

Once you arrive at the Ertrugul Gazi site, there's plenty of parking in front of the tomb which doesn't open around 9.30am. (Although you can access the site 24 hours, the actual room housing the tomb is only manned during office hours).

I suggest you walk though the site and exit past the back of the tomb. You will come across a wonderful tourist stall dedicated to Ertrugul manned by one of the friendliest human beings you will ever encounter. You will find Bey hats, all kinds of Ertugrul tourist gifts from keyrings, clothes, rings, ceramic cups, jugs, clothes and many varieties of ornaments. All at very reasonable prices - and he will even gift you a couple of items, that's how amazing he is! Many of these items are handcrafted and support local craftsmen/industry - would recommend buying from here!

Behind the tourist stall, he will escort you to this very cute cafe a few metres up the hill (1 min walk). It serves a very decent breakfast/lunch and dinner menu at unbelievably low prices. We had a very filling breakfast with teas - and it all came to 65 TL (about £9!!). Food was very nice and as soon as you walk into the cafe out of the cold, you will be glad to sit down.

The tomb itself is very well manned by two imposing looking guards in Ertugrul-esque uniforms wielding an an axe or a spear. Inside the tomb (it's quite long), the perimeter is surrounded by celebratory samples of soil from nations across the world that recognise Ertugrul as a founding father or who had a pivotal impact on their culture. Turkic nations such as Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, amongst other nations including Iran and many former USSR states have all shown their respect to Ertugrul Gazi in this way. His influence and the flags of the many nations that fly within his tomb are a testament to the magnitude of his personality and unifying character.

This visit can also be combined with a visit to Bursa.

The resting place of Ertugrul gazi and many alps- Söğüt (approx 2hours 45mins from SAW airport in Istanbul).

Fans of Ertugrul (the show) will really value the visit.

‘Alps’ guarding the tomb
Dundar Bey, Halime Hatun and an honorary grave for Turgut Alp outside (he’s actually buried in a different area, apparently 1 hour from Söğüt)
Kayi flags can be spotted on the way there
A few memorabilia shops just outside the tomb, including a costume shop where you can dress up as a hatun/alp- but it was closed when we went.

Osman Gazi is buried about 1.45mins away in Bursa- a lot more to see there generally.

We used a tour guide- contacted him via Instagram: Mdvipturizm

*Pick up and drop off from hotel.

*Spacious Mercedes mini van-like car - really appreciated the spaciousness of it due to the length of the journey!

- you will need to use google translate to communicate, if you can’t speak Turkish, but he was able to understand things well with translate.

At first me and my husband were kinda sceptical about taking the children on such a long journey from Istanbul on a full day tour but as we are massive fans and we couldn’t just let the opportunity go, we knew we would regret it if we didn’t go. But it turned out to be an amazing trip even the kids loved it! The journey itself was very comfortable and Hakan is an incredible host with a lot of knowledge, we learnt so much from him and enjoyed his company a lot. If you are interested in the history of the Ottoman Empire or huge fans of the show then go, you won’t regret it!

We traveled from Istanbul to bilecik. If you are an Dirilis Ertugrul fan, you would enjoy the dressing up as a hatun/ bey. Giving salaams to the deceased and visiting the locals who are hospitable and friendly.
My daughter enjoyed the dressing up, the gift shops and the adventure playground close by.

The best visit for my vacation in Turkey this year. Had a day trip from Istanbul to visit many places. Ertugrul Gazi Tomb was our first stop.
So nice to watch Ertugrul episodes and find it true.
The place Sogut is about 2 hours far from Istanbul.
We visited the Tomb of Ertugrul, his wife Halima Hatun, many of his soldiers like Torgut, Abdulrahman Gazi, Gunduz and many others. Visited gift shop at the back of the place where you can buy many souvenirs with Al Kai (IYI).
Amazing place and great visit. Don't miss the show of soldiers changing shift every hour.
