Tomb of Gül Baba

Gül Baba türbéje / Gül Baba Türbesi

Gül Baba’s tomb is located in Budapest. It is a short but steep walk from the Margaret Bridge. The tomb was built by beylerbeyi of Buda, Mehmed Pasha between 1543 and 1548 and has a shallow dome covered with lead plates and wooden tiles. The Habsburg army left it undamaged during the Second Battle of Buda in 1686. It was however converted into a Roman Catholic chapel. By 1916, the tomb represented the farthest influence of Bektashism in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
