Gul Baba's Tomb has been under construction for some time (longer than it was planned) for renovations. Gul Baba was a kind of a wanderer (dervish) and played an important role in the history of the most successful Turkish football club, Galatasaray. For the fans...More

I made the trek up that very steep cobble stone street and it was a mess. Nothing to see right now....so save yourself the trouble and dirt and don't do it.

The tomb is closed due to renovation works. I didn't find any information when it is going to be open again. It's seems they are making a big modern complex there.

It is entirely closed off for now while it is being restored and renovated. Don't climb the steep and picturesque road until it's finished.

Lovely views from this area, but sadly the tomb and gardens were closed and turned upside down for building works which the sign said would last some time.

When I went there it was all open. The statue, the terrace and the tomb were a very interesting witness to the Ottoman heritage of Hungary. I hope that I will be able to see it again next year. It is a shame that it...More

Visit it bevause of its terrace, but the tomb itself is under renovation for almost a year. This decreases the experience a lot...

Major refurbishment going on. Place is closed. You can get to the statue and take a picture with it. If that's your thing then go for it, otherwise save yourself the mild climb and wait till mid 2017.
