Owner description: Located in one of the city's lovely gardens are the Mausoleums of Osman, the founder of the Ottoman Empire, and his son Orhan Gazi.
Reviewed 7 April 2010

Tombs of Osman Gazi and his son Orhan Gazi are powerful, but not in terms of architecture or sytle but rather in meaning: these 2 warriors are the founders of a state which turned in almost 200 years into an empire that dominated the world and the place they have chosen for their own tombs is in itself an indicator that this development had nothing to do with chance or coincidence, it was the realization of a vision they had in mind since the beginning: the place where the tombs are situated right now hosted one of the most important churches of the Byzantine Empire, the gigantic ruler of the time. They were both confident they were to conquer the land and end the Byzantine rule, which eventually came through. Today, covered by centuries old trees, the place is always full of visitors. As the tombs have been renovated in 19th century, they have lost their simple impressiveness of the time but still worth a visit.
