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.

  • 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 »
  • It is entirely closed off for now while it is being restored and renovated. Don't climb the steep and picturesque road until it's finished.  more »
  • Lovely views from this area, but sadly the tomb and gardens were closed and turned upside down for building works which the sign said would last some time.  more »

  • 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.
  • Beautiful views, but under renovation-the inside piece is shut until at least March 2017
