The Ottoman empire founder and his families tombs located nearby the entrance of Bursa Tophane Park. There are personnel wearing in classic Ottoman warrior guarding the tombs and personnel reciting verse from Quran inside the tomb building.

The tombs of father and son are located in separate structures, side by side in Tophane Park - Osman left, Orhan right.
Osman, the founder of the Ottoman Empire lies here, which is appropriate because Bursa was the last Byzantine city he besieged before dying. His son Orhan finished the job in 1326 and buried his father on this site as a tribute. In Osman's mausoleum there are 17 sarcophagi in total. His resting place is honored by ceremonial guards (who are used to tourist selfies with them).
Nextdoors you will visit the mausoleum of Orhan, with 20 sarcophagi.
After paying your respects to these iconic leaders, walk towards the clocktower and terrace from where there are panoramic views over Bursa city.

Osman is a very important figure in the Otoman history and he is very regarded and respected being the first sultan that united all the tribes into one nation. I visited his tomb early in the day, it gets very crowded mid-day with tours and school students. It is not a big building and it is guarded by 2 "alps" the old soldiers. see picture. I was also lucky to watch the changing of the guards, I think happens every two hours, it was 10:00 sharp when that happened. Fully recommended for the history enthusiasts. Take the long ramp up for a great view, dont take the busy street!

Osman I was the founder of the dynasty of the Ottomans and it is he for whom their empire is named. He founded a kingdom in north-western Anatolia and campaigned against Bursa for much of his life. When he died, he asked his son to continue the siege and to bury him in the city when it fell. His son Orhan, who is buried nearby, fulfilled his father’s wishes. The tomb is well maintained and surrounded by a mother-of-pearl railing. Many people come here to pay their respects.

We planned a trip to Bursa to visit both tombs. It was very interesting to see how they still respect Sultan Osman and allow visitors to visit the mausoleum. The Sultan who united the turkish tribes and gave rise to the Ottoman empire rests quietly on top of a hill in Bursa.

As an Ottoman history buff, I did not ever dream of visiting the tomb of the dynasty founder and his son Orhan but there I was.

Osman's tomb now has a couple of guards of honour. Girls were oohing and aahing whilst taking pictures with the handsome guards.

Orhan's tomb was deserted and I would say he deserved more credit for his efforts in expanding the nascent Ottoman empire.

My husband and I love reading about Turkish history especially during the stories of the Ottomans and Seljuks. Osman was such an inspirational figure so we had to go read Syrah fatiha where he was buried. The city of Bursa is beautiful as well ❤️

These tombs are located at a hilltop with magnificent views of the city. Both the tombs are very well maintained and have a grand aura to them. Must visit if you like history.
