Gül Baba’s Tomb information
This reconstructed tomb contains the mortal remains of Gül Baba, an Ottoman dervish who took part in the capture of Buda in 1541 and is known in Hungary as the ‘Father of Roses’. The tomb and mosque are a pilgrimage place for Muslims, especially from Turkey, and you must remove your shoes before entering. From Török utca, which runs parallel to Frankel Leó út, walk up steep Gül Baba utca to the set of steps just past No 16.
You can also get here from Mecset utca, which runs north from Margit utca.
