Tombs of Osman and Orhan (Osman Gazi Türbesi) Tours

Tombs of Osman and Orhan (Osman Gazi Türbesi)
Find the Tombs of Osman and Orhan (Osman Gazi Türbesi) founders of the Ottoman Empire, in Tophane Park in Bursa. Built in an Ottoman baroque style by Sultan Abdulaziz in 1863, after the original tombs were destroyed by an earthquake in 1855, the lavishly decorated tombs pay homage to the first sultan of the Ottoman Empire, his son, and their family.
 
The Basics
The tombs are located side by side in Tophane Park, with Osman Gazi’s tomb on the left side of the park and Orhan Gazi on the right. Osman Gazi’s sarcophagus is the more richly decorated of the two and includes mother-of-pearl inlays. Both are surrounded by plain sarcophagi of family members and descendents. Visitors can visit the two tombs and stroll around Tophane Park, admiring beautiful views of the city of Bursa.
 
Visit the Tombs of Osman and Orhan independently or on a guided sightseeing tour of Bursa, which may include other popular attractions such as the Great Mosque, the Green Mosque, and the Bursa Grand Bazaar. Or opt for a multi-day tour and explore highlights of Bursa and Istanbul.

Osman and Orhan
Osman Gazi, also known as Osman I, was the founder and first sultan of the Ottoman Empire. He died in 1324, around the time his son, Orhan, conquered Bursa, which became the capital of the Ottoman Empire for 130 years. It was Osman Gazi's wish to be "laid to rest beneath the silver dome of Bursa," and his tomb was constructed on the chapel of St. Elie, the Byzantine monastery formerly on the site.
