Landmark Tourist Spot
Reflect on the richness of the capital city's multicultural past at Gül Baba Türbe és Rózsakert Budapest. The 16th-century Islamic turbe (a type of mausoleum architecture translated as "tomb tower") on the Buda side of the city is the resting place of the Ottoman dervish, poet, mystic, and theologian Gül Baba. The tomb is a pilgrimage site, and as an important historical monument, it is administered by the Republic of Turkey. Admire the restored Islamic architecture, view the elaborate ornaments, stroll through the rose garden, and examine the collection of exhibited artifacts. The road leading up to the tomb is paved in old cobblestones, so if you walk be sure to wear appropriate shoes. Admission is free of charge. A visit to Gül Baba Türbe és Rózsakert Budapest represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Budapest travel itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • A bit surprising that this mausoleum is located so centrally located in Budapest. After very many trips here, I have not been aware of this. It is recommended to take a trip to the place.

  • Hi we tried to visit the tomb today but it was a still under construction. We just walked down the street named after him lovely walk down a bit disappointed we couldn't see the statue as it has been ...  more »
  • How is the beautiful city of Budapest, who knows. Compared to our twisted and neglected our cities, it is possible to see the countless attractions of this historic city, trails and monuments. With the Danube River on the environment, also adds a beauty of the bridge. Anadolu care for about 160 years of the Ottoman Empire to come out of the most known places in the city is Gul Baba mausoleum without the leave would be unreasonable. The Danube is in one of the hills overlooking a modest mausoleum/monument. Budapest, so clean and beautiful, Gul dad, if you couldn't find anything much in tomb of the road to the shrine and we think it's worth the trip, even for landscapes.

  • It was closed and none of the guys managing tourist buses knew or it's not announced in google maps.,, I walked 40 min only to find that it's under construction......COMMUNICATION!!!
  • A tiny piece of the Orient in central Budapest. Nice architecture and a serene atmosphere, you may well be the only visitor there. A bit of a walk from Margaret Bridge uphill, but the views are pretty good.
  • I can't really give an accurate rating since the tomb is inaccessible until March 1, 2017 for renovations and archeological work. There is a great view of the city though and a statue of Gül Baba. That might be worth the climb up the stairs for some folks.
  • Cool view of the city from here. The resting place of Gül Baba, the Ottoman leader. Fun fact: Gül Baba loved roses, and had a huge rose garden here. The name of this area "Rose Hill" comes from here.
  • This Ottoman heritage site is quite simple but very calm and suitable for a romantic date. It has the tomb of Gul Baba, who lived in Buda and since his name means roses, the place has a nice rose garden.
