Gul Baba Tomb
February 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
We will do a walking tour of Gül Baba’s Tomb. Gül Baba was a Muslim dervish and member of the Bektás Order who accompanied the Ottoman army during their European military campaigns. He died 2 days after the capture of Buda in 1541. After his death, Gül Baba was declared as the patron saint of Buda and the monument on his tomb was built between 1543 and 1548.
We will meet at 10.00 and walk over to the tomb, then we can go for lunch around 12 pm. To make this a more meaningful experience, one of our members is happy to guide us through the museum and answer any questions we may have about the Muslim culture/religion.
