One of the most beautiful memories of Turkish times: the Gül doll’s turquoise
On the south-eastern slope of the Rose Hill, a small garden surrounded by a wall, Gül’s doll’s turquoise is a 16th-century Turkish chapel near the Buda foot of the Margit Bridge. Gül Baba, the father of the Roses, was a Bektashi Dervish, a warrior Muslim monk who arrived in Buda in 1541 with the invading Turkish army. According to legend, he died on September 2, 1541, on the Thanksgiving celebration of the occupation of the city. In honor of this, an ornate burial was organized, in which Sultan I. Szulejmán himself participated, and even, according to the legend, he was among the coffin-makers. The turtle raised above the grave of Gül Baba was built between 1543 and 1548 by Mehmed Jahjapasazada, the 3rd buddha dog. The place has since become a place of pilgrimage for Islamic people, a regular destination for Turkish tourists. The building is built on a carefully constructed stone statue, with octagonal planes and dome domes. It is made of quartz, its exterior facade is simple, each side is divided by wall mirrors, each second window opens. Its entrance is on the east side. The entrance hatch is made up of limestone blocks, closed semicircularly, but it was originally a donkey. Its interior wall was erected from a formidable sandstone, a single architectural ornament made of a brick hammock. It is closed by a semigroup dome, which is held by flakes. Padozata is covered with smooth planks with a large wooden spoon decorated with turban. In 1912 they replaced the original. In the 16th century, a monastery was built beside the turf, known by the name of Gül Babe. After the recapture of Buda, in 1690, the turf was built by the Jesuit Order as a Christian chapel. At that time, the donkeys were removed, their semicircles and baskets were replaced. Baroque transformations were the result of the dome-built lantern, which has now been demolished. By 1790 it served as a Jesuit chapel, after the order was dissolved, became a private house. In 1822, news sources were published as Turkish pilgrimage sites. On March 17, 1872, the News of the Sunday published “the order of the Turkish government gave a higher dervis to Buda, whose task was to elaborate on the correction and finishing of the mosque with an expert and then submit the budget to the government”. In 1885, the Turkish government renewed it with Lajos Grill. Further work was carried out before and after the First World War, during the restorations of the forties, they found an original donkey vase and Koran-stained stained glass window piece. Before the Second World War, the then owner, Lajos Wagner, built it, creating a non-compliant environment. His visible figure in 1962 was won.
French Pattern: Rock Church
In front of the Gellért Baths, in a hole in the wall of the Gellért Hill, the French Shelter Temple was concealed in 1931 as a continuation of a natural cave. The monastery next to it is home to the only Hungarian-built monk order, the supporters of the Paulian Order. The order still preserves one of its most important relics here: a piece of St Paul’s bone Remete. At the beginning, the rocks were kept in the open sky, the name came from here. The inspiration comes straight from the Lourdes of southern France, which is also reminiscent of the statue of Lourdes in the foreground of the church. In addition to the walls of ancient times and intimacy, it is interesting to note that the temperature in the church is about 20 degrees in the winter and summer, thanks to the hot water springs roaring in the rock. The church can be visited freely from Monday to Saturday during opening hours (taking into consideration the measure), the entrance to the large cross below the mountain.
Particularly attractable neighborhood: the Jewish district of Pest
From the end of the 19th century it was left out of large town planning, to this day small town-like and moody part of town is one of Budapest’s most unique quarters. Walking through the mysterious little streets you can take part in a real time travel. The main street of the Jewish quarter was the Király street, which was tinkering with tiny shops, when you were going to find the so-called Gozsdu court, opened from building No. 13, built by the Gozsdu Foundation, which supported the Romanian students in Pest in 1901. The passageway, which has ever been traded by the six inner courtyards, has also recently been renewed. There are also three synagogues in the area: the Great Synagogue of Dohány Street, one of Budapest’s major sights, the empty but accessible Rumbach Sebestyén Street and the beautifully restored Kazinczy Street orthodox synagogue. During the walk you have to relax in two places: the Fröhlich Confectionery, one of the only kosher confectioners in Hungary, a real flute, and the Klauzál Square Supporter a jar of cold beer.
Walk to the Past: National Pantheon
The Kerepesi Cemetery in Fiumei Street is one of the most important cemeteries in Budapest, but it is less known by the fact that this place hosts the National Pantheon of our country. The Pantheon originally meant a sanctuary for gods, but later, as in this case, the concept also coincided with the name of the national memorial site, with a place where people of the country’s cultural or historical significance could find eternal tranquility. The National Cemetery in Fiumei Road, founded in 1847, has the greatest figures of Hungarian history and culture, from Ferenc Deák to Lajos Kossuth, from János Arany to Ady Endre, and we could still have a lot to do. Those who are interested in the history of the 20th century find here the Prime Minister of the Revolution, József Antall, and the communist leader János Kádár’s tomb, and his earthly remains were stolen in 2007. The cemetery is huge, it’s best to ask a map on the porch, where the most important graves are marked. The cemetery is open from November 7.30 to 17.00.
Shocking monument in Budapest: Danube shoes
The Danube’s shoes were replaced by a film director, Can Togay and Gyula Pauner, the Kossuth prize-winning sculptor. The memorial places the eternal memory of the Holocaust in Budapest. It was inaugurated on April 16 of 2005 at 9.30 am, this day is the Holocaust Memorial Day in Budapest. Not surprisingly thousands of people are remembering this day in Budapest. In 2005 the participants of the Way of Life walked through torches to the Danube River in front of Kossuth Square, where the statues of the Shoes on the Danube Bank were launched.
The inscription on the plaque can be read in three languages: in Hungarian, English and Hebrew:
In memory of the victims of Budapest who were shot by gunmen into the Danube in the II. World War. Approved on April 16 of 2005.
