Osman Gazi Tomb

Osman Gazi was the founder of the Ottoman Empire. He lived between the years 1258 and 1324. At his wish, he was buried at the Gumuslu Kumbet, which was built on the ruins of the Byzantine Monastery of Sainte Elie after the Ottomans' conquest of Bursa. However, the tomb mostly collapsed because of the earthquake of 1855. In 1863, Sultan Abdulaziz built Sultan Abdulaziz as the same as old one. It draws attention with its silver and glitter embroidery on velvet and mother-of-pearl workmanship. It is few meters far from Orhan Gazi tomb in the Tophane Park.
