Was a nice place to visit, a travel back to time. The place could do with some more maintenance. It would be even better.

I really wanted to see Ottoman remains in Budapest. But Gul Baba Turbe is not something special. It is just a small Ottoman style tomb. If you have been to Istanbul you have probable seen bigger ones in everywhere, it has a quiet interesting story...More

One of the few Ottoman heritage that could survive. Amazing view of Budapest. Inside the tomb you feel the spirituality quite strongly. Gül (means Rose)Baba used to plant roses in Buda Hills. Thats why people named him Gul Baba.

Gul Baba's tomb is one of the few remnants of the Turkish rule in Budapest. It is slightly off the beaten track. If you are staying in Pest, take Tram No. 4/6 and get off immediately after crossing Margaret Bridge. Walk a few metres ahead...More

Just spent a week in Budapest and could spend many more but as the posts about Gul Baba's Tomb illustrate - a few more signposts would greatly help one.

I used the Frommer's Budapest Day by Day guide to do a good deal of my trip planning for my visit to Budapest. I really found it quite concise and useful. HOWEVER, I must take issue with the "15 Favorite Moments" section of the guide....More

When you walk round Budapest, it is easy to forget (or to not even know) that the city was once a part of the Turkish Empire. So few relics of the era exist, and Gul Baba's tomb is one of the few. It is easy...More
